As Piet said, you won't be able to improve your screenshot's quality, 
but of course you can change its resolution. One way to do this would 
be ImageMagick (http://www.imagemagick.org ), a set of open source 
command line tools for image manipulation.

If you use fink, you can install the non-X-Windows version (no GUI, 
AFAIK) with
$ fink install imagemagick-nox
