Optimal cover size

I converted some pdf-files into epub but the resulting epub-file does not show the cover-image full screen on my PRS 505.
Are there optimal settings or image-sizes to get a full screen cover-image in epub?

Tanks for the fast answer!

Must I think of the page-margins (I use 4 times 5.0 points)?

I would suggest setting your cover image in calibre, calibre will then take care of all that automatically for you when converting

Oh, I see, the problem is importing images from pdf, html or whatever.

Thanks.
