    Need User Account Picture Dimensions


    I want to create some Windows 8 User Account pictures in Photoshop. I understand this can be done with either .bmp or .png.

    I understand that Win8 will reduce and crop, but not necessarily in a way that will produce a good picture. I am having real trouble locating the pixel dimensions that Windows 8 needs for an uncropped User Account picture. Can anyone help?
