Been doing screen captures but they look flat. Wanted to know if there are any tutorials out there how to make them look closer to pictures.

well they're probably interlaced, and only 720x486, hardly high enough for printing.

no they are progressive and they are for the net not printing.

If they are looking flat on the web, you most likely need to bring them into photoshop and convert the profile to SRGB. It most cases that will help. But that all depends on the calibration of your monitor and your current color manegement settings on your computer.

If you want high-contrast images that look like film, then you need to use "Curves" in LAB Mode.

It may look complicated, but you are basically just making an "S".
