Hi,

Is there a document or a web page that describes the best way to
incorporate computer screen shots and still have your media accessible
and look good as well.

I am currently working with Microsoft Word documents with screen shots
in them that are on a web page that are used for training so students
can learn a application.
These images currently in the Word file are of each screen in the
application.
Below each screen shot or image it talks about how to operate that part
of the application.
There is no current description of what the image is.

Is there anything documented that will help with the design of this type
of training material?

My first thought was to label the image in the Word file with a short
description, if this is possible and then to create a part of the text
which describes each screen shot before it explains how to operate that
part of the program.

Maybe set the description apart from the text in a different font so you
can tell it is different from the instructional part of the text.

Thanks for any help or reference materials about incorporating screen
shots.

Bill
