They would likely be fine, but the aspect ratio needs to be fixed first (600x800), so you might as well change them to black and white while you are adjusting the picture size. Color images tend to take up more drive space as well.

"so you might as well change them to black and white while you are adjusting the picture size"

                  the problem is the screen goes black - when I change it to black and white.

irabren, you may want to use "greyscale" setting. That may help.

I used B&W when converting using Pixelmator. I would agree that grayscale should be your next choice if B&W doesn't work.

After you get it to B&W or grayscale then play with contrast and lighting to get a fairly contrasty black and white image.  Size it to 600 x 800 pixels and save it as a jpg and you're set.  My avatar started life as a color digital painting.

If you have a photpbucket account, you can do some of your phot editing there.  I also use Infranview.  It has all kinds of great features for a free program.
