To those who think FullShot is great, I *agree*, The program gives a great
amount of flexibility in capturing images, buttons, menu bars, and the like
as well as being easy to use. I never said I didn't like FullShot. I just
needed help getting rid of those funky scroll bars.
Also, thanks to all that have given me advice/suggestions on how to fix the
morie (check boarding effect). I have tried the majority of the solutions,
from changing my settings to high contrast white to resetting the registry
settings, to capturing in black and white. I have gotten down to the point
where the region captures from FullShot99 are much better, not so stipey and
ugly looking. However, I have not gotten to the point where the checker
board pattern is completely gone when I save the file in FullShot and import
it into FrameMaker. I am using the .png and bmp formats. PNG is better
quality then bmp to me. I think the only way to get them 100 percent gone is
to go in and clean them up manually. I have tried on screen settings of
1024x768, running on a Windows NT 4.0 machine, and this afternoon I will try
on some different settings to see if it makes any difference. Thank you for
all of the input, suggestions, and advice.
