10.3: Be aware of non-square pixels in screen captures
Authored by: julesstoop on Feb 11, '04 02:12:53PM

Maybe he/she is running the screen in a non pure ratio mode like 1280*1024 (instead of 1280*960)? And somewhere the OS attaches a dpi value to the screendump, which is 'respected' by photoshop. The app then has no choice but to re-rasterize the picture.

Just my 2 cents...

1280x1024 actually is the correct aspect ratio for some monitors. I have a Sony FD Trinitron with a 5/4 ratio, rather than the more common 4/3. If I use 1280x960, everything looks stretched.
