"Dawson McKnight" <dawsonmcknight123 -at- yahoo -dot- com> reported a problem with
"screenshots are pixilated and "fuzzy"-looking to the point of being
worthless. . . The design firm requested that we send all of our
screenshots to them as TIFs (CMYK, 24-bit, and "uncompressed"). The
resolution of the screenshots is 92 DPI. The firm had to reduce the size of
the screenshots to about 60% of their original size" to fit them into the Quark.

In my experience with offset-printing of graphics, the printer has requested
that the material be printed to film (or to a file that he can print to
film) at 300 or 600 dpi. Offset generally has better resolution than
desktop inkjet or laser printers. 92 dpi is awfully low resolution. YMMV
