Adding Images keeping size low

 ğAdding high quality images without making a big file size
ally I am making a software product and I am writing an ebook explaining how to use it. I need to use high quality images so that the text is seen. I used .bmp format. The size of pdf was running into 100s of Mb! Then  used .png format. The size came down to around 70-80 MB. Then I used the online pdf converteres. They gave me a small 4 MB sized file but the image quality was not that good.

I have seen many ebook with high quality images but with sizes as small as 5-10 MB. What is the way to do it?

EBookCompiler Reduce the color depth on your screen before taking screenshots.

Turn off settings that are hard to compress, such as fancy window backgrounds etc.

Use pngcrush or similar.
