I like the window decorations too, but getting them is too much trouble
as Hatari screenshot functionality works now so nicely. :-)

If the program doesn't have anything on borders, I think the black borders
around the screenshot look bad.

Laurent's Falcon screenshots seem to be zoomed too.

I kind of like that too, it "proves" that the screenshot is from Hatari
similarly to window title/borders.  I just wonder whether I should somehow
try to fit Hatari version into the statusbar. :-)

For some reason imagemagick (with something like "-colors 255") doesn't make
the image file smaller.  Gimp works fine though as long as one sets
dithering to "none" when changing image to indexed mode.

Interlacing increases the image size slightly and the images are pretty
small anyway, so I don't think this is necessary.

(Falcon TC pictures could be jpegs which already should make them smaller.)
