Shrinking secondary structure images

I tried to fit two 800bp RNA structures obtained from mfold in one page (in Canvas). When I shrunk them down I lost quality. The solution was to scale the images (structures) down instead of just dragging the corners to make them smaller.

This works for structures saved as either pdf or postscript and then imported into programs like Canvas, Photoshop or Illustrator.
