The dpi was not reduced. Most images already had a dpi of 96, but some
had one of 72dpi. those were increased to 96 dpi.

If you can find out how to make the pdf generation scale the images to
fit the page so they won't get cut off at the right, that would be
great. I tried many hours to get this done without success.

Once you got that done, we can use larger images again.
