You can do the indexing manually with the Posterize tool. I don't know if it
matches any of the indexing options presented by the mode conversion, but it
will reduce colors.
BTW, you should never use any dithering option when indexing an image
intended to be saved as PNG - the compression gets better than there are
large areas of one color.
