Decrease screen capture size
« on: September 10, 2006, 07:59:05 AM »
I was wondering what are the best settings to make the screen captures as small as possible? I haven't touched any of the settings, they are all stock. When I capture my entire desktop (dual montiors) it generates a png that is about 10Mb. Is there a way to decrease this while maintaining a reasonable quality (suitible for word documents, pdf or power point presentations)?

Thanks!

10mb png is not right.

i believe you have probably set the compression level to FAR LEFT minimum in general settings tab.

this bypasses normal lossless png compression - i need to fix this.

go to general settings tab of preferences and set compression level at 1 away from minimum, that should result in nice small files, and not result in any loss in quality.
