How can SnagIt capture an image at a higher resolution than what the screen
is set to?  A 20" screen at 1280 x 1024, for example, is 96 DPI.  How do you
get 200 DPI out of that?

By choosing 150dpi you are reducing the print size of the image. In
other words you are scaling the picture to make it smaller by
increasing the resolution. ...

Note that with SnagIt you can opt to capture the image at other resolutions,
so you need not change anything in FM. I capture images as 200dpi TIFFs, and
then import them at 200dpi in my books. I go to print, PDF, and online help
from a single set of screenshots.
