Hi everyone,

I'm about to release a PDF manual that will have users who will print it
and also view it from their computers.

Initially, the screen captures I provided were blurry when I printed it.
So, with a bit of tweaking I got to provide better GIF screenshots in
256 colors that printed well in a PDF.

Now, the project team wants me to also ensure that when they open the
PDF in a computer screen (e.g., 15-inch screen), the screenshot should
also display well.

Currently, it doesn't display as clearly on screen as it does on print.
But since I'm no graphics expert, is there a way I can have a crisp
screen capture even on screen (at 100%)? I'm not sure if such a setting

These are the tools I use: SnagIt 8.0, Word 2003 SP2 (original doc),
Adobe Acrobat Professional 7.0.7, and PDF Maker from Word to create
