    When you saved it as a texture package? Did you make sure to uncheck the 'mipmaps (or something like that)' box?

    When you import the texture you are asked to give it a packagename and a texturename. and you should always follow the screenshot rules. for example:

    Package = MyLevel
    Name = Screenshot
    Uncheck MipMaps

    The MyLevel packagename is the only name that the engine knows to save anything into a map, so don't call it anything else and don't save it in a separate texture package (that would be stupid as some people have done it).
    Always name the texture for the screenshot as 'Screenshot' or if you're using several for animated ones you can call the first one 'Screenshot' and the next one 'Screenshot2' and so on.
    When making a screenshot you must turn off the Mipmaps so that your screenshot looks nice and detailed because it doesnt have to be rendered by distances inside a map while playing (that's because the screenshot shouldn't be placed anywhere inside a map's structure which requires mipmaps).

    Remember to reference the screenshot somewhere in your map, otherwise it will not be saved in the map package.
