I used to use FullShot, and loved it. However, as you have seen,
there is the problem of the "moire" effect. The solution is to set your
colors for capture, using few colors (usually takes a few tries to get it
but this is also good if you are using color pictures, such as online docs,
you will have a fairly neutral color scheme).
You may be able to configure FullShot to convert colors for you when
you snap the picture--check it out. I used to use it to convert my color
to black and white (no gray allowed), and it was superior for that...I
the color conversion scheme.
The other reason it was a favorite of mine was the sequential file
where you just "snapped a picture" and it was automatically saved. Worked
great when you had about 100 screen shots.
