Well first off Bookmaker doesn't work with grayscale (it only works with
black and white bitmaps). To do that you really need to use Press. But
regardless you should first convert the picture to 16 grayscale with a
image editor and save it in PICT format. Then in press set format to
either MP2000 or Emate then add the image. Press tries to convert
images on the fly and it is often worse than just editing the images
yourself first. I get much better quality by editing/converting first.
  Also you can add the image to the RTF file and then import that into
Press, but make sure you convert them to 16 grayscale first.
