Judy Kristoff Posted February 28, 2012 Share Posted February 28, 2012 I am trying to incorporate screen shots of some web pages into a PDF document. I have tried to do this in two ways. The clarity of the screenshots in PDFs in both cases is quite poor. I would appreciate guidance on what I can do to improve the clarity of the screenshots in the PDF documents. Here are the two methods I have tried: Method I: I transferred the screen shot of the web page created using the Print Screen function into Paint and saved the images in two formats GIF (96 dpi) and JPG (300 dpi). I then resized the GIF and JPG images to reduce the width down to 624 pixels needed in the PDF document. The resulting GIF (higher) and JPG (lower) images are shown in the following images: I then took these images and copied them into Microsoft Publisher to generate the PDF document. The PDF document is shown in PDF from Method I Method II: Here I skipped using Paint to generate the GIF and JPG images. I copied the screen shot directly into Publisher to generate the PDF document. The PDF document generated by Method II is shown in PDF from Method II I do not know if this matters ... this work is done on a laptop PC with 1600x900 display resolution. In both methods, clarity of the screenshots deteriorates substantially when the PDF is generated in Microsoft Publisher. Is this normal? I would appreciate guidance on what I can do to improve the clarity of the screenshots in the PDF documents. Thanks much, Judy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
