Best Pixel dimensions for background


#1

Hey everyone,

I just signed up here and want to start creating some nice background as my first submission :slight_smile:

After searching in the forms I wasn’t able to get a desired answer so that’s why I’m creating this thread.

What would be the best & most popular pixel dimension for a high quality background?

Everybody seems to have their own view on this and would love to hear yours…

Thanks,
Ben

No idea… I’ve always used 3000x1800px :slight_smile:

2560x1600 px

3000x2000 px

1920x1080 px

1600x900 px

I’ve used all of these but I think 2560x1600 px and 1920x1080 px are the most popular.

I would say create the largest possible (within reason) and then offer various resolutions for each file. The ones graphic mind pointed out a pretty standard.

I would say its a personal preference thing, Obviously you don’t want to be doing them in a small resolution like 800x600 if you’re going to be selling them on the marketplace but the above suggestions are good. I would work as big as you can but not overly big Just enough so that you have the option to downsize to the standard resolution sizes if you wish to sell them like that or have the choice of selling the larger copy.

Perhaps it might be an idea to take a look at 10 - 20 of the top sellers in the backgrounds category to get an idea of what sizes they are using and including and then from there you can decide what resolution you want to use for the end product for sale. :slight_smile:

For reference here are common desktop resolution sizes -

Widescreen:

1024x600

1280x800

1366x768

1440x900

1600x900

1680x1050

1920x1080

1920x1200

2560x1440

2560x1600

Standard:

800x600

1024x768

1280x960

1280x1024

1400x1050

1600x1200

2560x2048
