If you are displaying 256 colors when you take the screen capture,
you may want to try reducing the number of colors to 16. Saves
resources, and most of the time doesn't lose anything.

I use the 16 color dither function in WINGIF.

Try using a smaller image format... GIFs should be substantially smaller
little or no loss of quality. Compressed TIFs should work as well, with
slightly less space savings.
