At present, 800x600 doesn't exist as it doesn't seem a popular resolution. Discussion needed.

(hmmm dubious, but correct according to original document)

bottom banner  800x24 PNG BDO-GALAXY.png

For ksplash, all measurements to scale images must be under 600-image width, for a scale in x) and 400-image height for a scale in y as 600x400 is the smallest resolution we ship. Accordingly, all images apart from background.png must be 600x400 at the largest.
