Dov,

Sorry I didn't get back to you earlier. I've been using SnagIt 6.2 to
capture images. The hard issue I've been having is in creating captures
that can be placed on the Web. Some of these include simple line that I
need to resize, drawings that also include text. It hasn't been easy to
find a way to get good, clear graphics.

To further answer your question, I've been using the default settings in
SnagIt and importing into FM 7.2 as Objects rather than files. That in
itself may be part of my mistake. I've used your method described below
using stricty SnagIt, rather than PhotoShop, and got similar (good)
results to yours. Thanks!

Jon,

I just tried this on my notebook system sitting in a hotel
room on a business trip. Did screen shot Alt-PrtSc and pasted
the result into a new document in Photoshop 9 (=CS2).
Flattened the layers and saved as RGB TIFF with profile
embedded and LZW compression (in this case, the profile 
doesn't seem to make any difference, unfortunately). I then
started up FrameMaker 7.2 (updated with all patches available
on Adobe web site), created a new document, and imported the
TIFF file by reference onto a blank page. Worked like a charm.

What program did you create the TIFF file in? EXACTLY what 
options did you use to save the file? 

        - Dov
