When I try to save a screen shot as a *.jpg or *.tif the output is either very very coarse (far worse than the screen) at 600dpi or takes 5 minutes to complete and requires 200Mbytes of space. I assume I am missing something?
Not sure what the problem, good computer? Anyway, might be better off just printing a screen capture. For that, see your other recent post I also just replied to before reading this one.
HP Elitebook 8770w. It behaves fine otherwise. Using screen captures is what I do now, and it does work, but I was hoping to improve the resolution.
I've generally used scrn-capture(i.e. print scr)>
paint>Ctrl+v and edited then saved as jpeg/jpg
check out most of my posts have a shot
resolution 1024x768(usually cropped)
hope this helps- have a good'n kelef
Make sure you don't have your options set way too high resolution. In the export options you mention 600 dpi, so keep in mind anything larger than a-size paper size will be a gigantic file, since 8.5 x 11inches times 600 dots per square inch, if you choose D-size that's way too high resolultion. Also not that you can reduce file size with jpeg compression. Otherwise that sounds like a laptop, so I'm a bit leary about it's capability, but don't know the specs. Key here I think is to revisit your export options.
I avoid tiffs like the plague because they always seem to have huge file sizes, but the jpg option should be good. Since you said you set 600 dpi I am assuming you have the Print capture bubble marked rather than screen capture? Also make sure your paper size selection isn't weird, like user defined at 1 in by 1 in, because then the resulting image would only be 600 x 600 pixels.
