1) Consider increasing the brightness and contrast in Paint
Shop Pro select: Colours
| Adjust | Brightness/Contrast...
In this example we used 3% more brightness and 15 % more contrast.
2) You may want to resize the image use: Image
| Resize... | Percentage of Original.
In this case we used 33% of original size. The result is a smaller file size and faster download.
3) Sharpen the image use: Effects | Sharpen | Unsharp Mask... experiment with different values for strength to see what looks best.
4) Consider saving as a GIF file for text or simple line drawings (reducing
to only 256 colours).
In this example the final file size was reduced to 55KB from 395 KB.
