How are devs dealing with screenshots for Tablet submissions? 640x640???

I am curious what other developers are doing to handle the screenshots during submission. The submission process is rejecting anything but 640x640, but the Playbook spits out 1024x600 screenshots which would definitely be the best experience. 

 

Thanks for any help!

For now, we've just been scaling proportionately, so the 1024x600 image is dropped to 640x375 (62.5% size).

 

If you install ImageMagick, the following command scales things at the command line:

convert screenshot1.jpg -resize 640x375 screenshot1_small.jpg

I use that with a small script to automatically scale many screenshots at a time.

Same here in just resizing the images (for me through Paint.NET). Still having to do this seems a little silly...
