Size/Resolution of Backgrounds and Images RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have seen tons of questions and answers about adjusting the resolution for images and I have seen many answers. But in my case I am designing my entire app in photoshop (buttons, backgrounds, images) and then I wanted to take those assets and put them in my app. 

    But my question is what the appropriate resolution for my background images for one so they show up just as crisp and bright as the do in Photoshop? I know windows devices can support multiple resolutions but you shouldn't have images that are too large to avoid slow loading, so with that being said what is the ideal size for background images to keep the crisp resolution?

    And with images, I know I have to create multiple sizes to be able to quickly adjust to multiple resolution, can someone provide detailed guidance on how to go about that. The more specific with these 2 the better.
