Here, that window is laden with a lot of choices, but I wouldn't have
called the images particularly large.  Most of the icons are smaller,
even, than Nautilus showing a directory of files in icon mode, at 100%
size.  Some are a bit bigger than others, so I'm guessing the desktop
theme currently in use might play a factor.  My monitor's just a 1280 by
800 WXGA laptop screen, and they look about the same size as any icon in
a program menu bar.  Just spaced fairly well, so that they're not
crammed together, but not overly spaced apart.

As an OT:  I think I've mentioned the big LDK2 camera with you, before.
I obtained a service manual for it the other day, loads of fun to be had
with it when I get some spare time.  You could say, now, that it's an
open source camera.   ;-)  Everything you need to know to build your own
is in it, if you were a glutton for punishment...
