We’re talking about screen captures. Typical monitors display 96 pixels per 
inch, so you’re not “creating” something at 300 dpi. And you never want or need 
to downsample a screen capture.

I’ll repeat myself just one more time. Ignore “resolution.” Just look at the 
pixel dimensions of your screen capture. If it’s 1280 x 800 pixels, make sure 
it remains 1280 x 800 pixels. Period. Divide that 1280-pixel width by the width 
in inches that you want the graphic to take up in FM, and that’s the dpi you 
set at import.

That would sort of be my point. If you want to -- not have to -- you would 
create your gold copy of the graphic at say 300 DPI and downsample it 
automatically in Photoshop or simply adjust it to usable size when you import 
into FM since you specify the DPI during import.

Setting the resolution in FrameMaker doesn't degrade the image, it
just changes its size. If you set a bitmap of a screen shot to 300
dpi, users might have to zoom in 4X to see it.
