Image notes

  • The current image height, 480 pixels, was chosen to match that of standard VGA. (It also divides conveniently by 6.)
  • The current image width, 777 pixels, was chosen to approximate the golden ratio:
480\varphi = 480\left(\frac{1 + \sqrt{5}}{2}\right) = 776.656314\ldots \approx 777.
