Sorry for the late reply really busy on my end here. :D We didn't know what 
the exact dimentions were in the past, but now after developing a few games 
we have a good idea of what size is needed.

For the player images the size is: 90 X 140
The cribbage board is: 220 X 420

In the previous release we re-vamped the interface to not have the round count 
itnergrated into the cribbage board. Many of our users found this to be too 
confusing. So, to use the cribbage board graphics you've created we can't 
have the round count there any more. I appologize for the extra time you'll 
spend on that bit.

The images in the homepage are not meant to be representation of the in game 
graphics. They're scaled down to conserve bandwith. 

        Hope your art competition is going well,
