Description Malte S. Stretz 2008-12-06 20:04:39 UTC
Version:           unknown (using 4.1.80 (KDE 4.1.80 (KDE 4.2 Beta1)), Kubuntu packages)
Compiler:          cc
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.27-9-generic

I really love the new Desktop Settings dialog, especially with the previews in the drop down list.  There's just one thing I'm missing:  Because I've got a quite big resolution, most of the shipped pictures are scaled up and look like crap, all pixelated.  Thats of course not the designer's fault, but I'd like to have some hint whether the picture will look nice or not.

My suggestion: Just add the image resolution below the authors name.

Additionally it might be nice to have a small overlay icon, like an exclamation mark or something, which is displayed if the scaling factor will be too high or something.

I'll add a separate bug for the HotNewStuff dialog or whatever its called.
