[Ipe-discuss] Exporting high-quality EPS files

If you use beamer, you really should not use EPS figures - beamer produces PDF, and will work much better and easier with PDF figures. 

My guess is that the degradation happens when beamer converts the EPS back to PDF.    The EPS output of Ipe should be identical to the PDF output (it's vector graphics after all, there is nothing that can get lost).    The -resolution argument in iperender has no effect for SVG and EPS output.
