In fact for GRUB you need a 16 colors image, with one color reserved for 
black and another for white, so practically 14 colors.

GIMP: Image -> Mode -> Indexed, set maximum number of colors to 14 and 
try with various types of dithering.
The result will *not* be perfect so you will have to do some cleaning 
with a brush (a normal brush or clone).

Sometime the result is simply not good enough so you have to create a 
simpler version of the image for this purpose.
