I had this problem just last week and received a lot of posts offering
help. I tried everything everyone suggested:

--change the screen settings to 256 colors and recapture the

--recapture the screenshots at 200 dpi and save them at 200 dpi using
Capture Professional.

--recapture the screenshots using HiJaak Pro.

--import the images instead of copy/paste (which I never do anyway. . .)

--save the images in different formats, preferably TIFF.

--create a PS file and used Distiller instead of PDF Writer. Tried all
kinds of variations in the options setting.

--create a pdf using PDF Writer and turn off Downsample Images in the
Compression option.

--pull out hair and cut off head.

None of these suggestions helped my situation. Then I decided to try
something. I brought the original pdf (that I created with PDF Writer at
home and printed on my non-postscript NEC laser printer) to work and
printed it out on a postscript printer. The graphics looked beautiful.
They still looked yucky onscreen.

What to do? Tell users they must print the pdf using a postscript

Any thoughts?
