10.4: Change the default screenshot format
Authored by: alfrank on Jul 09, '05 04:44:18AM

After a quick Test of JPG I reverted back to PNG because text and plain colors (as in screenshots of Finder windows or web pages) are handled much better by PNG. With JPEG the colors are often not correct and text is blurry !

10.4: Change the default screenshot format
Authored by: bostmass on Jul 10, '05 08:07:18PM

Unfortunately, the quality setting for jpegs (if you choose that format) is 60%. That would give you artifacts and poorly rasterized text. Photoshop and Imageready are good at overcoming this, but I don't think the built-in screen capture uses the same algorithms. Does anyone know how to add a plist entry to change that setting to something higher? Image Events allows this, so I'm sure there has got to be a way.
