In the thread "TeX template for PDF help files" Roy made this comment:
"Stata is not capable of displaying high resolution images. It looks
like something out of 1980s, except it comes in color. Think Atari or
Commodore 64."

Could you please elaborate on that statement? The resolution is
limited by the display, not by Stata.
