IMHO you can safely change this (or any other) text if you think it's 
confusing or wrong. Most likely you will enhance that text, and if you 
really happen to make it worse (nobody is perfect!) someone else will 
be confused and will hopefully correct it. :-)

Sounds good to me.

Maybe it's a good idea to add two or three sample images (e.g. 3 
images à 150x150 pixels (with reduced number of lines?)) to illustrate 
the effect of this option?

Yes, why not?
