    What dimensions are people using for album art ?? Most things seem to recommend 200x200 but I find that a lot of the time this looks too small.

    Are there any real performance issues using larger images ??

    (I am using a mixture of Meedio, MediaPortal, WMP10 and WMP10 on my palmtop)

    300x300 as a minimum but I tend to simply grab the largest image available and let the program deal with it. 200x200 is too small as I primarily use iTunes in a large window and it doesn't automatically scale a smaller image (pretty poor I know). I've never noticed any adverse performance issues using a larger image with anything other than the oldest PC.

    PS: I am of course not refering to 4000x4000 images but max size I've used is around 1200x1200 IIRC.
