@ bill & trippin:
Thank you for raising this point. I make them big so that the user can later scale them down to a smaller size as per his/her needs
. This was also why the mister cracker
images were large in size.
As you know, if you do the reverse -- scale a smaller image up, it suffers from the 'resolution loss syndrome' and looks pixelated, particularly when it's a bitmap
[like jpg, gif, png] and not size-independant vector

Maybe a user would need a larger version of his/her logo sometime and if it were small to begin with, enlarging it [like I mentioned above] will not produce an acceptable copy...
Particularly in Bill's case, since he usually doesn't specify the size, I assume that he intends to use it in several sizes or try various sizes before he chooses one.
