Dear Xerte users,

I'm trying to develop Xerte training materials to replace powerpoint slides previously used.  These included screenshots of literature searches using databases, catalogue searches etc.

*         I use Jing for the screenshots.

*         I've tried different file types - .GIF, .JPG, .PNG., .TIF.

*         Microsoft Office Picture manager to try and edit or resize the picture before importing into Xerte.

Picture quality however is variable, or just poor, once imported: certainly if viewed in Full Screen.

Any hints or tips?  Apologies if I've missed something obvious.  Colleagues here have had similar problems with screenshot images.
