Oops! I forgot to mention at then end of my last post: While I find this is a good method for resizing screen shots, I am firmly in the "Crop to section your talking about" camp. I find that I get the best results from using both methods.

I've done a similar thing, but I've found that the tradeoff is in the file
size (and sometimes in the time spent). I've also found that the results
aren't always satisfactory.

If the GUI window is large, sometimes it's preferable to crop.
