Hello fellow techwriters, here's a graphics puzzle for you... How do *you*
get around it?

I'm doing screen captures on Windows 95, 256 colors. (I tried 16 colors and
makes matters worse). Printer: HP 4M

Problem: Scroll bars in Windows 95 have a light gray color - this color is
in fact checkered, made up of white and gray (when you zoom in very very
close).When I print the image, the scroll bar comes out checkered gray and

Do you have any solutions other than retouching each single image? Changing
the windows standard colors is out of the question since we may need to
reuse the images in color.

So, what are your solutions? (Are there any?)
