Hi all

I'm having trouble with some screen shots appearing fuzzy in PDF. This is
what I'm doing:
1. Using a screencapture utility to save a dialogue window as a gif.
2. Importing the gif into Framemaker (image placed in an anchored frame) -
At this point the image appears sharp when viewed on screen and printed.
3. Using distiller to convert into PDF - here things go fuzzy..

I've tried using different formats (JPegs, Bmps...) - no luck.

Somebody suggested I need to use a vector graphics format using
Ilustrator, exporting gfx to EPS and inserting by reference -- This all
seems a bit much for a simple screen shot...but I'll have a go at this..in
the meantime are there any other solutions?

many thanks
