Anyone know the optimal size and format for MyFordTouch wallpaper on the 2012 Focus?

Google says everything from 800x600 to 800x378. I assume a jpg works fine.

First thing I want to do in my car is set the wallpaper...
2012 Ford Focus Titanium Hatchback, Tuxedo Black, Premium Pkg, MyFord Touch/Nav, Parking Tech, Winter Pkg, Moonroof, 17" Machined and Painted Wheels, Cargo Protector

Would you happen to have a link to an online copy of the user manual? I have a Focus Titanium on order and I would love to get a head-start on learning about MyTouch. Thanks!
