before capturing graphics.
It will save you time in the long run and I won't have to write and ask you to
amend your web pages. You have no idea how many people I have to write each
week because they didn't read this page, They then have to start editing their pages.

AOL Users
Please, do not capture and display graphics from Rhio's Sampler
unless you are willing to follow the steps to decompressing your settings.  AOL compresses
my graphics so much that they look blurry, distorted, and the browser replaces the original extention. 
In other words, my graphics are
automatically altered This violates my "terms of use".
See the AOL and Earthlink Accelerator warning at the bottom of the page.
