I had another look at your link, and I'm not sure what it represents. 
What I did was use my scribalbum.py script to load PDFs into a document 
in Scribus, then made a PDF of that. After that, it does depend on how 
much you may have enlarged the PDF in the Image category of the 
Properties tool.
There also is a requestor in PDF Export to set the resolution of EPS 

Do you have a recent ghostscript? 8.53 is available and may do a better job.
