    When resizing (smaller), you got to use sharp function and I think if you are making the image in JPG, you may want to select the compress at 1% which will give better quality but bigger file size.

    I have a program that is called screenshot around here somewhere that I use, it lets you section off parts of the screen for printing, saving as a file or emailing it. I will try to locate it in the next couple of days and post some info here, Kinda got the flu here so it will be a couple of days.

    When it comes to resizing you should get best results with Photoshop's Bicubic resampling method (as mentioned by Bender or Eva2k) - at least for size reductions.

    If you want to enlarge a picture nothing is better than Spline's advanced s-spline technique: http://www.s-spline.com/

    If you change the image size in PS, be sure to take care of the resolution setting (pixel/inch which is dpi).

    good luck

    Even when you make an image smaller the quality is lower, since the program has to "delete" some pixels.

    Either way, the original image is the one with the most quailty.

    Making a picture smaller is no problem, making it bigger than the original will always result in a loss of quality, since the graphics program has to calculate new, additional pixels.
    I am sure it's just me, but it does it in every program that I have tried so far. It's not just a marginal reduction in resolution, it's major.

    Here's an example:

    No program will give you full quality when resizing a picture.

    You can't eat a pie and leave it whole.
    (or something like that )

    But I'm really not the authority when it comes to graphics tho.

    I don't think you get my drift here. It's sharp when full sized. it's when I want to make it 4" x 3" for a publication that it loses it's resolution.

    No, PDT816, you're not actually printing the screen, just copying it
    I usually press <STRG> + <PRINTSCREEN> (to capture the current window, not the complete screen), then in photoshop <STRG> + N to create a new file, then <STRG> + V to paste the screen into PS.
    Can't see the need for a screencapturing software

    Print screen copies it exactly how it is. The quality is the same as you are looking at it.

    When I use the "print screen" function, it's definately not print quality.

    I need to put this in a broucher, so I need the resolution high so I can resize the image and not loose the quality.

    Are and how are you guys doing this?
