I'd check two things.

1) What kind of compression settings are you using in Distiller? If your
goal is high quality prints, they you should you less (or even no)

2) Try importing the graphics into Frame at a different resolution. For
example, 72 dpi is great for onscreen viewing, but not so good for printing.
For printing, a resolution of 100, 150 or even 300 may produce better
results. Just remember that if you bring in a graphic at 300 dpi and then
enlarge it, the print file size will expand.

Is there a way to improve the quality of a screen capture generated from a
PDF file?
The (color) pictures look fine on the screen but deteriorate terribly when
printed in B/W on HP8000 printer.
We are using Xview utility to capture the screens, FM ver 5.5.6 on Win NT4
Acrobat 4 to distill.
