# [Tex/LaTex] LyX enlarging inserted images

dimensionsgraphicslyx

I have a problem with inserting images in my thesis that I write with LyX. Images in exported pdf are always larger than they actually are.

Here is what it looks like in the editor, that's the real size of the image:

However in the pdf the image is larger and you can see the pixelation: (It isn't zoomed in the pdf reader, it's 100% size).

I've tried checking the checkbox and setting 100% size in the image's properties but that didn't help.

What do I need to do to have images in my thesis appear exactly the same size as they actually are?

• Usually the safer option here is set the width of the image to a percentage of the line with of text as show the screenshot. With "safer" I mean that other options, said Scale Graphics(%): 30% or Set With: 30 Text Widht % could work for your page layout, but if you later change the layout (for example from one to two columns of text) most probably you will need to set the image size again.
