Regarding saving as an image-file: does it work when you (temporarily) set
the monitor to use 256 or 16-bits colors? When there are no other pictures
in the file, saving it with 256 colors as a png-file should not have effect
on the colorquality.

Another option might be to look for a "print2jpg" utility?
