Hey all,

Long time lurker, first time poster. I'm trying to get a screenshot of
a webpage to look decent within a PDF. Taking screenshots, saving as
GIF, inserting into Word to add other guff, then printing to PDF. As
soon as they hit Word they look pretty awful though, and then printing
to PDF the quality is reduced even further (using both PrimoPDF and

I understand that the PDF writers will add compression so I expect the
quality to be reduced but how do I get the screenshots to look good in

understanding of print.

Any help would be much appreciated.
