If on Mac, zoom in to the plan say 200 percent. Then save out the image in the file format you want.
You should notice that the file size is based on what the percentage of zoom you have. So if you are zoomed way out on a site plan to see it all then the graphics will be reduced in resolution. So to get a greater detailed file you need to be zoomed in. The more zoomed in the greater the file size.

I am trying to save a tif at a resolution of 600 dpi. Originally the final output was to be 4" high, but editor may want it to be larger. I can always change the scale in archicad and/or plotmaker to make the original larger, but either way I can not get it with a resolution greater than 72 dpi.
It is a 2D drawing for use as an illustration accompanying an article. I have been zooming in and out of the archicad plan window trying unsuccessfully to save it out at higher than 72 dpi.
I have tried saving it out from plotmaker with equally abysmal results.
I can save a pdf at high resolution, but the printer is requesting it as a tif or eps.
Opening the pdf in PHOtoshop to change it there to a tif or other format adds a gridded backgroung. I am not skilled in Photoshop. does this grid print?
