When doing gray scales from color and reducing the bits per pixels (color
bits) you can choose different dithering patterns. Sometimes press will
screw up the dithering, try a different dithering pattern. also I second the
vote for WordPad. A great little program that has been under rated.

Something else. I was using Paint Shop Pro to resize images and convert to
grayscale, and then ImageMagick to convert to "true grayscale" with 16
shades. The result in that format opens fine in Windows Paint which will
copy-paste into Newton Press without a problem. I don't understand how to
get Paint Shop Pro to go to 16 greys so I could potentially skip the
ImageMagick step; if I just copy-paste into Press from PSP it looks right in
Press but the image on the eMate is garbled.
