Rob -

My business deals with CMS all day long, and what most CMS authors that we
work with have done is provide reasonable default limites on image
resolution.  By providing simple parameters, you can allow "power" users to
adjust their preferences, while protecting audiences from the mistakes of
inexperienced webmasters.  It's been our experience that most users who
don't know anything about resolution are going to be impressed that it
worked at all. ;-)

All the best,
