This link has some good information about Graphics Resolution:


In partciular, it indicates that if you specify a single dimension, it 
will proprotionately scale the image to fit. Thus, you could specify a 
maximum width (or height) and it would scale to that size. You just 
need to be sure the corresponding image dimension doesn't put the image 
off the page.
