RE: Why JPGs for screen captures? test results
I just did my own test
I captured 5 screen caps of the same image with Snagit 6.1.0 outputting to file and saving formats PNG, GIF, JPG, TIF, BMP. Each image into Photoshop 7 and reduced the image size by 50%. All images were then place into a Quark 4.04 document (my DTP of choice). I placed the original, the photoshop-reduced image and a second original scaled to 50% by Quark side-by-side. I then printed on an HP4000 and eye-balled the results for clarity. I accept that there may have been techniques I could have applied in Photoshop when reducing the image sizes to obtain better results.
