Oh, OK. Well, I'm not sure if greyscale would be any smaller than
16 color, but you can try. One thing, though... I'd advise against
presenting your Windows 3D sceenshots in b&w. This, IMO, always
looks cobby -- like you were either too lazy to take the time
to make it look good or too cheap to have it printed in hi-rez.
Since you sure don't fit either category, you might just as well
resign yourself to the larger image size. ;-)
