150 dpi at 100% is usually enough for laser printing. If you feel you need
greater resolution, you can always increase your view percentage and tile the
captures back in Photoshop. One thing in PS that you can't easily do with a
Quark EPS is punch up the grayscale contrast
One hint about screen captures is that they always seem to be a bit sharper
when in bitmap alignment. That means viewing, capturing and placing in the
document in sizes such as 192, 96, 48, 72, 24, 36, etc. percent. (As opposed
to 200, 100, 50. 75, 25, etc.).
