Screen Capture without rasters?

We are documenting an MS-Windows software package that has used some
very (from our point of view) unfortunate screen colours. When I capture
the screens (Windows 3.1 _not_ 95) for inclusion in MS-WfW (i.e. BMP, PCX
or TIF), I get the most awful grid/rastering effect. Other than manually
retouching every screen by hand, can anyone suggest a fitering/masking
effect or software package that could be used to convert these colours
to a usable grey scale? (the worst colour is a sort of disgusting purple
that in grey or 16 colour dither looks like a nutmeg grater ... if ever
there was a reason for having a documentation specialist involved in the
interface development then this is IT ... how many GUI developers ever
consider what the interface is going to look like on PAPER????).

t.i.a.

Simon North.
