Topic: HELP for bmp distortion ASAP, please.

I need some help regarding bmp screen shots created using HiJaak Capture for WIN95, and inserted into Word (97)documents, then pdf'd using Adobe Acrobat 4.0 for Intranet usage and printables from website. The bmp's are distorted on the website as well as when printed. I've heard that jpg's are better for this use, but was told to use bmp as the default setting when using HiJaak to capture screen shots.

Although this is a HUGE company I'm on contract with, the user manual is nowhere to be found, so I've searched and searched the Internet for an answer, only to come up frustrated and with no solution. I believe it has something to do with compression, distiller, or something, but I'm not positive. I am not even the person pdf-ing the files, but have been asked to research this, so I could REALLY use your help, or else I'm going to have to try to use a different graphic type and reinsert more than 1000 graphics into my documents to try to get them to appear and print properly.

Your help would be GREATLY appreciated. THANK YOU!!!
