When doing screen captures, you don't actually get any ppi at all, you just get the plain pixels. The resolution you attach to the image is quite arbitrary. When using it in a book, you might want to scale the image by an integer scale with next neighbour "interpolation" though. IMHO pixelized screenshots look better than blurred ones on paper. But maybe one of the actual book writers on this list may tell you more. *hint* Greetings, Daniel
