[dsdp-tm-dev] FW: Standard for screenshots?

Hi Dave,

our WR Techpubs people say that they don't have
a standard for screenshots, other than using 
WinXP with the default colors.

For RSE, I'd propose doing the same:
  Screenshots on WinXP with default colors
  Colors downsampled to 256 / no dithering
  PNG format preferred
  Make views etc as small as possible (max width 800 if possible)
    - might sometimes not be possible.
    - crop unnecessary stuff away
