Shrinking of screenshots is generally problematic as there are
probably many features on there that are only 1 pixel wide (lines and
text). If you scale that down it is doomed to look ugly.

A 1 pixel wide black line on white background will end up gray if
scaled down. Sharpening can improve that.

A small font where every pixel counts will be unreadable and no
sharpening can recover that.

What are the images for?
