On my laptop, when i take screenshots, the produced file is OK to be printed at 150 dpi in the PDF output.
To set print resolution of the picture i did following : Open in GIMP, set picture print size from 72dpi to 150dpi and save.
If I set the resolution to 300dpi (which would give the best output), images are to small and unreadable.
If I omit to set the resolution, images are printed with a 72dpi output, which is very pixellised.

For now, i will continue to take screenshots and change resolution to 150 dpi.

Maybe a screenshot session on a high resolution screen would produce better quality images ?

Someone who can take this in charge just before release, when we know every images that are necessary ?

This is OK, but the dependencies installation were not updated : it should now include imagemagick as well ! I'll do it.
