In some cases, it seems the pdf output of Tikz is more elegant and cleaner than capturing the image via screen capture softwares (e.g. Texmaker). Is there a way to upload the pdf directly rather than an image (i.e. .jpeg or.png) in the website? Image upload button allows uploading only images not pdf.

  • Could you edit here to make it clear you are talking about the website?

    Web browsers don't work with PDFs, they need raster images. You can of course convert your PDF to PNG without doing a screen grab: we've got a number of meta questions in this area.

  • The way the question reads here it seemed to be about TeX not about using TeX-sx, so I migrated to the main site. However, you edit there makes it clear that you are really talking about interaction with the website, so I've 'killed' the migration.
