I'm writing a documentation in Word 2010 using the snipping tool. I take screenshots of forms in my application. When I paste them in Word, most of the time Word changes the image and text gets blurred.
If I set the image to 100%, the text in the image still appears blurred. I said most of the time because sometimes the image looks fine. But I don't know what the pattern is.
Test files to reproduce it
What I have tried
- I read some articles about how the DPI affects this, I am using the default (smaller) text size. I tried to save the files in PNG format, changed them with photoshop to make sure they have 96 DPI. They look fine in Photoshop, however when I paste them into Word, word does something to them and they don't look as sharp as the original image.
- I tried the do not compress images in file option, and it doesn't work.
- In order to reproduce this I actually tried different sizes for the image. For some sizes it worked fine. I suspect that this issue occurs for certain image dimensions but I didn't find the patterns.
What can I do to fix this?
