Large Things

You should probably put a limit on saving stuff. Not that I especially mind, personally, but you probably shouldn't let the average person save a 500k cell pattern, especially in image form, as that seems to freeze up the browser (1 cell under 12/1 is still awesome, though).

Yeah the server won't actually go through with making any images that are larger than 800x800 pixels since that would put a lot of strain on the server, but all of the other stuff (file encoding etc) is actually done on the client end of things so I figured there'd be no harm; all it will do is slow down the user's computer. There should at least be a warning message or something though for large computations.

Kk, I've added this for images, let me know if it works properly or not. I'll add some kind of warning message thing when trying to save particularly large non-image files soon.
