Who is the captain of this splendid vessel?

One thing I'm wondering though, this is not meant to be a complaint but I would like to know...
I notice some of you guys have really big pictures. I have a 20.1"/51cm widescreen monitor or 1680 x 1050 pixsels (which is by no means tiny) and these images are too big for, so what I'm wondering is why you have such big images?
- They are too big to be posted in the thread which is a bit incovenient when someone wants to reference a particular picture.
- They don't fit within the resolution of the screen. Like I said I'm on 1680 x 1050 but there maybe some people out there with 800 x 600.
- They take longer to download. Ok, so maybe some of us have really fast Internet connections and they just appear. I've only got 512K and that's a bit slow but someone on dialup is going to be waiting 20 images per image.
Once again that question isn't meant to be a complaint, I'm just wondering the need for such large images. 800 x 600 is usually sufficient unless the MOC is a gigantic scene or something like that.

As far as I'm aware most digital cameras give you the option to select the size of the image it takes. So I'd recommend a size of 800 x 600 which is 0.4 Megapixels. Now this may not seem much but we must remember Megapixels don't determine the quality of the image, rather they determine the size of the image in pixels. So if you don't want to resize or edit the images in any way then perhaps setting the camera as low as would suffice, so long as you set the quality to "super fine" or whatever the highest setting is called.

The good thing about it (besides that its freeware) is that it can resize pictures in a batch.
Meaning that you can just take your picts and resize them all at once.
This way you can leave your camera at the standard size and resolution.
Well, I also like the ship :-).
Does the captain have a custom torso?
I've never seen this before and it looks very good.
