Hi guys,

Speaking about Flare and Capture vs SnagIt, I've an issue I'd like to submit
to those of you who use Flare and Capture and output to pdf.

We are switching to Flare (from FrameMaker, if that's of any interest to you
...). But I'm not very happy with the way captures are rendered in pdf.
MadCap help and support say we need to capture screens in 300 dpi and use
png, which is what we've been doing but still, the results don't look good.
We've tried using Capture and SnagIt but none output to a nice looking pdf.

With FrameMaker we don't have the issue.

Any ideas?
