Did I not send this to the list? Ah well, please excuse the duplicate post
if it happens . . ..


I recommend you perform some tests, however capture the screenshot at a
resolution equal to the linescreen of your printer, which is approximately
1/4 the rated dpi of that printer.

AFAIK, a Xerox Docutek prints at 600dpi maximum, so screen captures more
than 150 dpi would be wasted on a Docutek. If you are printing to 1200dpi,
then screen captures higher than 300dpi would be wasted.

However, if you test, I think you'll find 120dpi sufficient and anything
more is a waste of hard drive space. Also, consider the dpi of the source,
96dpi in Windows? Check it out!
