As of http://trac.wordpress.org/changeset/2757 , the presentation page 
now supports theme screenshots. Recommended size is 420x315, though 
something bigger with the same ratio should be decent. The themes 
available on extend will include screenshots to spec by tomorrow.

The page looks for screenshot.* in the theme directory and uses that as 
the image. This means you can use GIF or JPG or PNG or whatever gives yo 
you the best image quality and size. If someone wanted to be ultra-leet 
the "image" could be a .php file that generates a screenshot dynamically 
based on variables culled from the blog itself, like title and such.

Bugs about the implementation go to the wp-testers list or Trac, 
discussion about the concept or future of themes in general should stay 
on hackers. I hope everyone is having a good weekend!
