IDL 5.4 has some new keywords for producing a PostScript preview
image: PRE_XSIZE, PRE_YSIZE, PRE_DEPTH. These are suppose to
allow you to create a preview, or thumbnail, image of a particular
I just tried it with a screen snapshot:
snapshot = TVRD(True=1)
Device, /Encapsulate, /Preview, Pre_XSize=100, Pre_YSize=100, $
TV, snapshot, True=1
IDL went away for 5-6 several seconds while the file was written.
But the resulting file was over 17 MBytes in size!
I think I'm going to stick to the tried and true way of
adding preview images in GhostView. :-(
