Captivate 4 publishes images that contain alpha as high quality images even if the slide quality setting was JPEG or low. In CP 5, the algorithm used for color selection when publishing with low quality has been enhanced to work reasonably well for alpha-based images. Therefore, your preferences for image quality are honored better in CP 5. Fig 2 - CP4 JPEG 82%.
