[phenixbb] Improving picture quality of ED map in PYMOL

Hi Raja,

here is what I usually do to get a paper-quality picture out of PyMol:

once I have model and maps displayed, I issues these commands:

ray 500,500
png file_name

You need to play with the above numbers to get the picture you like, and 
it will be saved under file name file_name.png.
Since I use Pymol one a year or so, I can't remember what the above 
"magic" numbers/commands mean.

I created the figure, but not happy with the quality as it is now. Might be there is a way to improve which I don't know. I want the lines in the mesh to be more sharp and fine. Any suggested program to prepare a publication quality figure to show the ED map would be of great help.
