If you wish to have these screen grabs or captures in color, change them to Indexed color, usually 4 bit is adequate for documentation uses, as the grabs are usually not photos.
I recomend TIF always, and of course GIF/JPEG for web uses. There are now filters that can add transparency directly in Photoshop on the PC and the Mac. Some of these are shareware and are available online.
