This is on behalf of a fellow Oz framer who has been trying to post for the
last couple of days with no joy.

He switched to using PNGs for the many screenshots in his very large manuals
-- but the file sizes have blown out exponentially, presumably because of the
now millions of extra colours introduced to the Frame colour lists. (All
images are imported by ref, BTW.) He is using FM 7.1, having recently binned
5.5.6 (where the problem also existed).

I vaguely remember reading that this colour blow-out applies only when one
particular Windows Colour Quality setting is used. 

Can anyone please remind me which one?

He will also need some plugin (or a FrameScript) that he can wipe over >10,000
pages to rid them of the extra colours.

All contributions greatfully received.
