    whats the size that you should have a picture optimally to use as a wallpaper on the Captivate? i tried using some pics that were 480x800, but they didnt quite look AS good when scrolling through different screens via LauncherPro....

    960x800 is the best to use. No Zooming required.

    also, will .png files work on the Captivate? i usually like to use .pngs because they seem to be a lil sharper, making great use of the awesome display.

    Not just "seem", but "are" sharper... at least relative to JPG. Jpeg is a lossy compression meaning that data is thrown away in the effort to make it smaller. PNG is lossless, so the image is always at the original perfect quality... just highly-compressed.

    Some Jpegs will be worse than others, depending on what the creator set the compression ratio at. 85% is about average, but some will choose more while others less, and the affect on quality is often noticeable (at least to me).
