I have a PowerPoint 2007 presentation in which I've linked a large number of one-page PDF documents. These docs were originally scanned from hardcopies, and the quality in many of them is only fair.

The images as they appear in PowerPoint are not as good as the originals; in the case of fine text, they are barely legible.

The alternative would be to open the docs in Adobe Reader, stretch them to a large size, copy the image and paste it into PowerPoint. These images are definitely cleaner and more legible, but the copy-and-paste process would take much longer than inserting links (which I'm doing with a very fast macro).

I'm hoping that someone knows of some setting I can change that will improve the image quality for the several dozen existing links; failing that, what else can I do that's faster than starting over with the copy-and-paste?
