I had the same problem you mention using PDF Writer. I regularly use
screen shots captured at the default resolution (I think it's set to 96
dpi on the PC and 150 dpi on the Mac). I've written post script files
using PDF Writer, Distiller, and other postscript PPDs. If I am
producing a grayscale publication, I have the best results writing using
a Hewlet Packart 5Si MX print driver. I write the PDF using Distiller. I
can send you the settings I use, if you like but you have probably tried
that variation. Also, if you are printing a grayscale document, make
sure you have the color set to grayscale. That can make a big difference.

There is a way to correct the problem you are having. Try a slightly
different postscript printer driver. The other thing you might try is to
visit Adobe's troubleshooting section on Acrobat. I found some solutions
there.

Good luck!
