Best way to import Excel graphs?

I've had success doing the following:

  1. determine how big i want the charts to be in my final product.
  2. in excel, I use a screen ruler (like jr screen ruler) to size the graph to exactly the size i determined I needed.
  3. then I copy the graph and paste it into a graphics editing program (i use adobe fireworks cs3).
  4. from Fireworks, I export as PNG.
  5. then i import into lectora.

The graphs are always very crisp. The key, i've found, is to size the graphs correctly before leaving Excel.
