I need to convert a large screen capture into a format that I can place in
PageMaker, shrink down to about 65% and then export to PDF. I normally do
captures in Paint Shop Pro and save as a wmf and place into my Page
document. These seem to export nicely into PDF format. The problem that has
arisen is that I need to place numbers onto the capture so that I can label
the parts of the screen. I have tried saving the capture as an eps and
opening in Illustrator to edit and have also tried placing the wmf into
Illustrator than editing. Either way, once I export to PDF the capture turns
very blurry. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help.....
