Trying using some of Photoshop's features, such as Sharpen. Play around
with the combinations, and you'll soon find what works best for your
screen shots.

Also, if you have a lot of information on the screens, why not crop as
often as possible? If you only show the relevant parts of each shot, the
shots will be much more useful to readers.

I'd advise against use pointers, as I've seen in some manuals: that
starts getting into high maintenance.
