Hi everyone! I've been a lurker here for quite a while, but this is the first time I've ever posted a question. I've looked in the memories for an answer but haven't been able to find one, so hopefully someone will be able to offer me some advice on this.

I've recently gotten into making screencaps. I use PowerDVD and PSP 8 to do it, and I haven't had any trouble actually making the screencaps. But here's my question (and please forgive me if this seems like a silly one -- I feel silly for asking, but I'm honestly curious):

I know that, for example, there is a set size for, say, LJ icons. But does anyone here have a size formula that they use when making screencaps? I'm planning to put my caps up on my site when I get them all done, and so I plan to do the clickable thumbnail thing, but...I have no idea what size to set them at.

At the moment, I have PowerDVD configured so that when I hit the "Capture" button, it saves the cap as a file in my "screencaps" folder. In the configuration setting, I have the "custom size" box checked, and it's set at 114x108 (which was the default setting). Plus, I have the "Keep aspect ratio" box checked.

Does that sound about right, or does anyone else have any suggestions for me...?

Thanks in advance for any advice!
