Size and resolution from an image saved as a graphic format file

1 view (last 30 days)
I have the following code to save a plot to a graphics format file. My problem is with the image obtained. If I save the image as a bmp image or as the others formats (for example, jpeg image), the appearance is different (resolution and size). I would like to know how I can fix this.
X = 0:pi/100:2*pi;
Y = sin(X);
fh = figure('toolbar','none','menubar','none');
Pan1 = uipanel(fh,'Units','normalized','Position',[0 0 0.5 1],'title',...
'Panel1');
Pan2 = uipanel(fh,'Units','normalized','Position',[0.5 0 0.5 1],'title',...
'Panel2');
haxes = axes('Parent',Pan2,'Units', 'normalized','Position',...
[0.125 0.1 0.75 0.75]);
hplot = plot(haxes,X,Y);
xlabel(haxes,'Time (second)');
ylabel(haxes,'Amplitude (meter)');
title(haxes,'Sine function');
FileName = uiputfile('*.bmp;*.png;*.jpg;*.tif','Save as');
ftmp = figure('Menu','none','Toolbar','none','Units','normalized',...
'Position',[-1000 -1000 1 1]);
new_axes = copyobj(haxes, ftmp);
set(new_axes,'Units','normalized','Position',[0.1 0.1 0.8 0.8]);
saveas(ftmp, FileName);
delete(ftmp);
delete(fh);

If you use print() instead of saveas(), then you can use the -r option to set the resolution.
The contribution export_fig also supports setting resolution.
