320x200 pixels and the borders ought to be enough for everyone ;)

Unfortunately some people are still stuck with laptops from the sad 768 pixel wide screen era.

I'd advise to have a bit more scalable UI design (for the pixel grid at least), unless loosing some potential users is not a problem.

I've made an unreleased sprite editor with a comfortable default 2x scaling (so that it's 460x260 pixels) back in 2003. These days I need to override it with a more appropriate 8x setting from the command line. But at least it was future proof ;)

@ CeriX: First off I started last year to program this tool for myself only, never intended to make a public version out of it. A few weeks ago I changed my mind and started to polish this tool a bit.
You may need to understand that I've got a 27" WQHD (1440p) monitor and that I got sick of people who release tools with small, tiny forms.
As this tools was for me only and I didn't like to use magnifying glass I coded a form with a proper size for my WQHD screen.
But it's planned that the formsize will be adjustable in one of the future updates. Stay tuned.

@Dr.J: thanks for the flowers. What do you mean colours anchored ? (check my PM!)

Looks cool... Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work on my laptop (resolution 1366x768) since crucial GUI parts seem to be not on screen! :-(
