Instead of a TIFF file, save out an EPS file... I'll refer you to "Easy EPS" in the "Tips & Tricks":

The EPS allows you to open the file in an image editor application at a desired resolution, then you can save a TIFF from there.

Thanks David,
I am curious as to why one can't set the tiff resolution within plotmaker (and archicad itself). Is there a reason why not or just that this has yet to be included?. This is possible for jpgs.

The only way to adjust resolution for graphic output in ArchiCAD is in the "Photorender Projection" function. None for PlotMaker or any other views in ArchiCAD.

You are stuck with saving out graphics to the display screen resolution or using the EPS format. You can also save out to PDF format.

if you want higher resolutions start with a size larger than you need and shrink it down later
