Set Up Your Screen With Printing in Mind


Set up your screen with the final destination of your screen capture in mind. Good color schemes and fonts for on-screen display do not necessarily translate well to color or grayscale printing. Avoid desktop color schemes that include gradient colors. Switch to solid colors. Color combinations that look good on-screen may not look as clear in print. For example, black text on a dark background can be hard to read.
