Hi,
Regarding reducing the size of screen captures:

I have two methods, which depend on the program you are using to write the manual.
When I am capturing a screen shot for PageMaker, I capture the image with painshop pro, bring it into Photoshop, up the resolution and save as a .tiff. This reduces the size of the graphic without losing clarity.

When I am capturing a screen shot for Word 97, I increase the resolution on my screen to the highest that my monitor can accept,and then capture it with PaintShop Pro. I save it as a .bmp and fiddle with size in Word. This is the best solution I've found with Word.

Hope this helps
