Avoid Exotic Color Schemes for Screen Shots


Unless your object is to show off wallpaper and wild color schemes, stick with non-exotic colors such as the standard Windows desktop scheme for screen shots. Use a solid color background to facilitate background removal around windows and dialog boxes or to avoid distracting viewers. You can create and save a color scheme specifically for doing screen captures.
