Reality checks are always good ! :)
The user would have the option to turn on or off the import-check. Or, in
this particular case — which might happen quite often — I would suggest that
the warning only appears once the user leaves the edit mode for that image.
Actually, this could be the behaviour of that warning, not at import but
once the image is set to its desired size. The warning could appear or
disappear while scaling the image. Only then we can really tell whether the
image has enough resolution.
Plus, the warning would be soft. No need to answer [cancel] or [ok] etc. It
