Windows 7: Increase snipping tool png resolution

Why do you produce PDF files (I assume with Print to PDF). Is there no way to copy the pictures directly.

I work in a music notation program called "Finale." The music pages contain many hidden designations for playback that don't appear in the printed music. For this reason, I print to PDF first before making the PNG files for the movie. The hidden items don't appear in the PDFs.

I'm not sure if I'd call this thread solved, but here's what I've done to decrease the blurriness. Perhaps my procedures can help others.

First, I turned my 24-inch monitor to a vertical position and brought up the individual music pages. I enlarged them to fit the screen. Then I saved each page as a PDF. I changed the default 600 dpi to 1200 dpi. I think the larger PDF and higher dpi helped. I used a free online service to convert the PDFs to PNG files. I used these PNGs in the video. I published the movie with a custom resolution (that I downloaded from a helpful site) at 1920x1080. The default resolution (for viewing on one's computer), which I initially used, is a paltry 640x480.

All this produced a video, and videos to come, that will be greatly improved from my initial effort.

Thanks to all for the suggestions and help!

Seems like the long way around the barn to me,
Seems you just need a better image editing program as already discussed,
Making a new project in this said imaging program beit free ones like Gimp/ paint.net....
Starting this new project as a 300-600 ppi or dpi/ resolution then copy to clipboard and pasting in that editing program will produce the paste with that resolution you start your project with,
Cheers.

MS Snipping Tool
Hi, Have been using that MS "Snipping Tool" that came with W7 on my PC quite often. Really a nice little add-on. However, I cannot get the "Eraser" function to ever work. I looked for an update of it to download, but can't find anyplace. Is there one ?

Snipping Tool Bug
Has anyone else noticed this bug with the Snipping Tool? This is a Window snip of CPU-Z and I highlighted the name of the processor. Notice the blank area above the snip, and where the highlighted mark is. It is as though the highlighting and pen annotation are done on a separate layer...

Snipping Tool
My snipping tool is acting up. :cry: I click the icon (on task bar) and it starts to glow a reddish colour and flashes slowly. Maybe about 1/2 a minute later, the snipping tool window opens and then again, sometimes it doesn't open at all. I was trying to snip an email pic in Outlook. I had to...
