Reduce the number of colors in the screen shot, using a program like
Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop. You can usually knock a 16 or 24-bit image
down to 8-bit (25 colors), which greatly reduces the file size and the
memory used. Depending on your screen shots, you might even be able to
reduce to 16 colors. At my previous job, our interfaces were pretty
standard and not terribly fancy, so I created a 16-color palette I could
apply to just about any image.

My words are my own. Confuse them with my employer's at your own risk.
