I'm not an expert on digital imaging but I can give you some general guidelines.
Super-high resolutions are best if you expect to: - significantly enlarge all or part of the image - produce a high-quality printout of all or part of the image
If your aim is to display the image on a computer screen, 1024x768 or 800x600 resolution should do fine. Example: I upload 800x600 images to eBay when they will be 'supersized'.
Smaller file sizes become useful when you intend to use the images on a web page, because they make the 'loading' of the page occur more quickly, especially for people with dialup connections to the Internet.
