I recently wrote a chapter of a book where I created the tables as JPG files as follows.
1. I displayed each statistical table by doing print preview in MS word.
2. I used a screen capture tool ScreenPrint32 to grab the rectangle of my laptop screen containing the table and created it as a separate file.
3. I then edited each table JPG file separate in Photoshop to make it 600 dpi and remove the white space at the edge of my selection.
Is there a better way to do this? How can I avoid the fuzzy gray pixels surrounding m characters. If you look at the attached image file you will see I don't get a clear black and white contract between the numbers and the white space. There are annoying gray pixels which detract from the publication quality of the image files. Should I be printing with some Word-to-PDF utility that creates very good quality files. How do I get rid of the fuzzy pixels?
