7.4 My WBMP images look bad, what can I do?

The Wireless Bitmap format supports only two colors, and making images look good can be tricky. However, your favorite image editor might have a function for decreasing the number of colors, and it might even have a method of doing this called Floyd-Steinberg. One such program is Jasc Paint Shop Pro. Paint Shop Pro is inexpensive compared to others, and there's even a WBMP plugin available which allows you to save WBMPs directly.
