It's the other way around actually (read my original post again), when using the printer, i get alpha, when using a screen based DC, i get dithering, this is why i don't understand it, since i KNOW that i can use e.g. AlphaBlend[^] on the screen without any problems, or if i use GetDeviceCaps[^] on the screen DC i see that it supports blending.
I kinda know that the capabilities of the device is -at least usually- determined by the driver "under" it, what i would like to know is what GDI+ does to come to the conclusion that the screen-based device is incapable of blending and thus resorts to "low quality" dithering.
