I have difficulty obtaining high quality screen captures for printed
documentation when I try to resize them.
I use FrameMaker and then Acrobat Distiller to create .pdf files, which are
given to the printer. I have tried changing the resolution in Acrobat
Distiller to 2400dpi, but this doesn't seem to make any difference. To
create the screen captures I use Paint Shop Pro. I have tried resizing them
both in Paint Shop Pro and FrameMaker but the results are pretty abysmal.
