I've had some (but not much) success with this method:
Copy the original capture to the clipboard, paste it into a vector graphics
program (Corel, Designer, etc.), scale it down there by the selected-object
handles, and then export it (at screen resolution) to a bit-mapped format.
Then open the image in PSP, clean it up wherever necessary, and save it as
a GIF.
Don't know whether this next idea will work (haven't tried it myself, but
seems worth a try in theory), but you might also try (within PSP) expanding
the resized image's color depth to 16 million colors, and then applying some
combination of the Sharpen and/or Enhance Detail filters. Then strip the
colors back down to 256 or 16, and save as a GIF.
