I found that the Resize program with RoboHelp Office 2000 does a good job of
re-sizing. Adobe PhotoShop (also bundled with the RoboHelp Office suite)also
does a good job.

I paste screen shots in to PhotoShop and then export them as .gifs. Some
times I usally re-size the Gifs with the Resize software, especially if I've
added text (i.e. labels) to it in a presentations program, and it's too big.

Re-sizing hasn't worked well for me in Word or Power Point.

There are limits to re-sizing objects smaller. Sometimes you have to use
some trial and error to see how small you can make an object without losing
too much legibility and detail.
