Seems like a waste of time to me. My authoring tools deal with
resizing bitmaps as needed for the various output formats and keeping
them at full resolution in the source gives higher-quality results for
both PDF and HTML.

Screen shots are not the same size after being cropped.

It will also convert a whole file of images to another format at once. If you make repeated screenshots for the same application on a widescreen, for example, they'll all be approximately the same size, so reducing the whole set to a given percentage of the original size, such as 70% or 50% makes sense.
