You're right that .png compress screenshot images much better than the .jpg format, but if you load a .jpg file first and then resave it to the .png format, the end result will be even worse.
The correct method to do it is to set up the original screen (e.g. open the word file), then copy the screenshot by pressing the "PrtSc" button on your keyboard, then paste the image to a program such as "Paint", then directly save it to the .png format. It should be a file around 100-200kB at most.
And you can even make it much smaller if you first save it to 256-color .bmp format, then resave it to .png format. But the quality will be a little rough (just a little). If you use 16-color .bmp instead it will shrink the file even further but I think the quality is not good enough.
Of course, if you use an alternative image editing program (don't ask me for any suggestion) which has the "palette optimization" feature, the result will be shockingly great (we're talking about <10kB here, and without any noticeable quality tradeoff too). But that's perhaps too much fuss.
But the question in the first place is why don't you just open the .doc file, copy and paste all the text and post in the forum directly. I would have done it for you, but it's my personal policy that I don't open .doc files created by other people on my personal PC (mostly because of the vulnerablity of Microsoft formats against malwares). That's why I don't recommend people sharing .doc, .xls files etc on the web, unless absolutely necessary and for business purposes.
I will try to solve the actual problems later.
