Changing the size of book covers

Hey all, yet another book cover question. I notice that when I send a book to my Nook Color (assuming I've done the crazy runaround to make the NC happy with the book cover in general), it always sends a MUCH smaller version of the book cover art than what I have in my Calibre Library. Most of my book covers are pretty big (height=1600px), but when they transfer to my NC, they end up very small (height=144px). Any way to change this?

That is the thumbnail height the Nook prefers.

Ah. But when I select a book on the NC and the cover gets really big for a moment, it's all pixelated. I was thinking that if the image file on the NC was bigger, perhaps the blown-up image wouldn't be so bad?
