Thanks for the tip Jason, having used bitmap2component - I haven't been 
impressed with the results at times. Is there no threshold value in 
bitmap2component that can equal the results of what you're getting 
though? They must used different methods..

I'm also sad to see that the KiCad 5 hasn't introduced a way to scale 
graphics imported from bitmap2component as well. I believe there's a 
website utility that can do it, but pretty lame that it's not 
implemented in the program itself (unless I've missed it).
