Sometimes clients employ inexperienced UAT testers from the ranks of their admin and support staff.

It then becomes a right pain in the derry when they decide that they are going to prove their worth by raising every little descrepancy between screenshot and system as a bug!


We just went through this same situation. We had screen shots in the Specification document and of course the final web pages were a lot different! Some bugs did get reported because of it.
I think that screen shots are ok at this level *as guidelines only*. At least they will give you some kind of visualization for writing test cases and such.
But to actually test against them is not a good idea. They are too high level at this point in the process.
