I need to flag two types of error message to the user, the first is designed
to let them know that they can't put a pixel subtraction number in the
field, in that if they want to reduce by say 10 pixels by putting -10 in
then it won't let them. Then the actual number they put in gets run through
a bandpass filter which is predefined in the site config file for upper and
lower limits of image sizing. This will also flag up an error if the max/min
sizes are exceeded.

The idea being whilst zero would be bad, having them resize a pic to
1,000,000 wide / high would be worse as apart from the storage aspect it
would nail the server for an awfully long time!
