Image issues

Hi everyone,

I'm hoping someone can help.  I am building application training in Articulate.  part of my problem is thta the application (which is web based) is too big when I take screenshots and add them to Presenter.  This results in poor quality screenshots which do not look professional.  I have tried to take the screenshots (using Snag-IT) while changing my monitor resollution to 1024 X768 (essentially the smallest I can go and still see the application properly.)

The problem is that if I want to fill my Powerpoint slide It has to be resized to 720 X 540 therefore the image becomes blurry.  Any suggestions as to what I can do to fill the Presenter/Powerpoint slide while showing all or most of the application window would be greatly appreciated. 

The only solution I have so far is to create a Captivate movie and placing it as a Flash movie on a slide that opens in a different window. 

I desperately need help.

Tom

Tom;

If you, or someone you know has Photoshop, there is a program from On-one Software called Genuine Fractals.  It will increase the resolution of an image - I've had a lot of success with it.  Free download is available here http://www.ononesoftware.com/products/suite/perfect-resize/?ind

Not sure what the problem is in adding multiple images to a screen.  You can add as many images to a screen as you want - just like PowerPoint.

As far as hovering the mouse for information pop up; you can't do this in Articulate, unless you add a Flash file.  You could build a similar solution in Engage http://www.articulate.com/support/engage09/?p=129  (information pops up when button is clicked), or hyperlink a button on one slide to another slide with the information already opened http://www.articulate.com/blog/articulate-101-using-hyperlinks-in-presenter/
