What do you mean by "scale them down"?

My first guess is that your screen isn't 1024x768, and so the slides
(including bitmap content) is scaled to fit your screen.

A reliable way to counter this scaling is to wrap the bitmap pict with
`size-in-pixels'. Of course, for different display sizes, the bitmap
will be a different size relative to the rest of the slide.

But are you already using `size-in-pixels'?
