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!

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 > -----Original Message----- > From: Jon Harvey [mailto:JHarvey at cambridgesoft.com] > Sent: Monday, January 29, 2007 10:03 AM > To: Dov Isaacs; Stuart Rogers; Clara Hall > Cc: framers at lists.frameusers.com > Subject: RE: High quality images > > Dov, > > I tried this.
