If you do your screenshot with GIMP, convert to an indexed palette
with 16 colors without dithering, then save as PNG, the file size of
screen shots is very decent, and the quality quite up to par for most
non-photographic desktop elements.

One has to warn also that lot of newsservers silently drop all
messages containing such images in "non-binary" Usenet groups.
