I did a screen capture of an image and displayed it on the SLCD6 or SLCD43 (in high color mode) and see color banding that was not in the original. What do I do to get rid of this?

Natural images (pictures) display quite well using 16-bit color. However, some computer-generated artwork images contain continuously varying color gradients that look banded when converted to 16-bit color. The way to resolve this is to use error diffusion (dithering) is to smooth out the banding. Look in the GIMP documentation or glossary for information on dithering support.
