screen resolution set at 1024 x 768. I acquired the screen with the Gimp,
saved it as a .tiff file with no compression. I then opened that image and
the properties were 1024 x 768, with a resolution of 76 X 72 dpi. Still
pretty lame, but a bit better. I read before that for an image to look
reasonable on screen it only needs a resolution of about 75 dpi. That would
explain why a screen capture would likely only result in approx. that
resolution. I suspect that you'd need one huge monitor to display something
300 x 300 dpi within the screen (short of a pretty small picture I guess).
That is probably where Chris was going with his suggestion. I just ramped
up my screen resolution to 1280 x 800 and the resulting screen capture was
119 x 112 dpi. So ramp that up as high as your card & monitor will support
and give that a try.
