:There's a big problem with what you're trying to do.

Why is it a "big problem". Others can do it decent, why can't she? :-)

:The Images that are displayed on a screen are at very low resolution.
:Usually 72 dots per inch or 96 dots per inch.  If you use screen
:capture, that's all you'll capture, 72 dpi or 96 dpi.

Isn't that all one needs to display the screen capture photo on a web
page? Maybe I am not following you correctly.

:When you print it out on a nice 300 or 600, or 1200 dots per inch
:printer, you're only giving the printer 72 or 96 dots per inch, so, as
:you've noticed, it's going to look pretty bad.

Now, this may be true, but I believe you *misread* Donna's query:
"display them in a portfolio section of a website"

:The reason it looks ok on the screen is that each bit is lit up and
:it blends with the next one as far as the human eye is concerned.

So, therefore it should look okay in her " portfolio section of a
website", no?
