I use Paintbrush to prepare all my screen captures for Word. (I use a wonderful
shareware product called SCap to actually capture the images.) I print in B&W
so I replace all the colored areas with black & white in Paintbrush.

Try saving it in monochrome if you print in B&W. That cuts the .bmp file to
at least a third of its colored size.

Another thing that reduces the size of a Paintbrush bitmap, if your bitmap
is smaller than 8.5 x 11, change the size of the image: from Options/ Image
Attributes... paste your image on the smaller "board."
In Word, Insert the .bmp file. You can scale the .bmp, and crop it further
in Word.
