Whenever you export bitmaps, you will lose some resolution because Mma's
representation is a vector format-postscript.  To get the best
conversion possible, resize the window to as large as possible and then
save it as bitmap.  When you shrink the size back down, it will convert
better, but you will never get a bitmap to look as good as a postscript
file.  Paintshop Pro can convert to over thirty formats, including .PCT.
