I'm using AuthorIT to build a CHM, and I'm finding that the image
quality of my embedded screen captures is very poor. Specifically, it
seems to be reducing the number of colors. I've experimented a bit with
the format, but nothing I've tried seems to help.

It also does this when I publish to Word, but in that case, it's easy to
replace the images directly in Word. A band-aid solution, but a
solution nonetheless.

Has anyone else had this problem in AuthorIT, and if so, how did you
solve it?

Thanks for your help!
