Screen dumps are often used in VC pitch presentations; either to showcase the company itself, or to give examples of competitors in the market. These screen shots are often filled with excess visual details:
  • The Windows title and scroll bars (sometimes with personal information such as instant messaging windows or the names of other web sites that are open on the screen)
  • The menu navigation structure, login windows, banner ads that surround the core web site.
Cut this clutter to create a much calmer slide that allows you to focus on what feature/aspect you would like to highlight.
