Yesterday, I was talking with another writer, and was surprised that his attitude towards screen shots and photos in documentation was nearly the opposite of mine.

Without mentioning my own attitudes for now, I was wondering: how much do other people on the list edit graphics? Do you crop them? Clean up moires? Remove writing in the background that's incomplete? Touch up photos? Adjust contrast and brightness? Change their sizes to emphasize their importance or improve page breaks? Is editing of graphics part of your production routine, or do you just insert them and forget about them?

"For they marry and go as the world rolls back,
They marry, and vanish, and die,
But their spirits shall live on the outside track
So long as the years go by."
- Henry Lawson, "The Outside Track"
