Your best bet for screen captures is to save them to uncompressed file formats, use a graphics editor to do any required scaling and then save to a compressed file, if that's what you require. Better still, set the resolution of the system you're running the subject SW on to whatever you expect the majority of your users to have before you do the capture and try to avoid scaling altogether if you can.

Remember that there are no fonts in a screen capture. All the text is raster image, and raster images will always lose detail and sharpness when you scale and compress them.
