There have been so many opinions on this issue that I'm getting a tad
confused. Here are my questions about screen captures:

* When doing screen captures that will be used in Frame for print documents
and also in online help, is it best to save them as .tiff and then resave as
.gif, using the former for print and the latter for web viewing.

* Does the dpi you specify in the capture tool make any difference at all to
your print or web output? (That is, if I set Snag-It to 300 dpi, why would
it matter since the screen is only 72 dpi?)
