Same here. I think SnagIt is an excellent tool and well worth the money.
If the image/drawing I want to capture is large (or vectorized), I try to maximise it as much as reasonable (native, without jaggies) on the 1920x1200 screen I use before the screen capture. This makes the PNG capture occur at a good high resolution – i.e., the source quality is better – so that letting FrameMaker downsize it to fit still makes it look good.

Can anyone point me toward a good resource (or just tell me if it's quick) for understanding how to get nice sharp images imported by reference in FrameMaker? I'm working on a doc right now in which I'm mostly importing PSD files. They're all screen captures of a user interface. I have to resize most of them and they're looking pretty choppy. I switched to a TIF image for one and that didn't help. I know that TIFF is the preferred format (not sure about PSD but many of my PSD imports look nice) but I don't know if there are specific guidelines or recommendations about resolution, resizing once imported, etc. I'm happy to provide more information about what I'm doing if needed. No idea what's relevant and what's not. Thank you, Tim CONFIDENTIALITY NOTICE: The information contained in this message may be privileged and/or confidential.
