Topic: Screenshot Image Quality
Conf: (P-PDF) Beginners, Msg: 76784

I have an MS Word document with lots of screenshots of a Windows program in it that I need to convert to PDF. When I convert it by printing to the "Distiller" printer, the screenshot image quality becomes horrible and grainy. The Word document itself is about 3 megabytes (94 pages) and the image quality in Word is exactly what I want converted over to PDF.

I've also tried changing the color, and compression settings in Distiller (making a new joboptions file for it), but nothing works in making the image quality better (it's still grainy no matter what I do)

Can anyone help me with this, or is there no way to preserve screenshot quality when converting the images to PDF?

Thank you for your time.
