    Tips on creating clearer screen shots of a webpage?

    Just wondering, what are some tips for creating a clear thumbnail shot of a webpage? For example, the screen shots at http://www.coolhomepages.com/cool-pages/web-design-pages/Very+Clean/1.html are cystal clear, while if I try and do something similar, the result is always quite blurry. Should I be resizing the browser window to a specific size or changing my screen resolution (current is: 1024x768) to something higher for the task?

    Any tips appreciated.

    Whenever I do screenshots of websites for thumbnail use I always apply the sharpen filter. That makes a big difference.

    Looks like they did sharpen the screenshots on Coolhomepages.

    try a little unsharp mask. that may do what you want (it brings out the edges and appears to make things more detailed than they are)

    Or if photoshop seems to daunting then use PSP 8, It's quite powerful, A lot easier to use and cheap to boot.
