    Hi there dear fellow-Android users.

    Today, I had the joy to stumble upon one of the numerous Android wonders: LauncherPro. I have played around with it a bit and must admit that a vast array of possibilities has opened to me.
    This got me thinking - my girlfriend is an Arts student and can undoubtedly pull out some pretty fancy things on Adobe Illustrator or whatever absurdly overpriced and complex devices and programs they use in this branch. She could design my own little icons :D

    So, could anyone please be kind enough to enlighten me on the format & size of:
    • Normal application icons
    • Dock icons (slightly smaller I'd assume)
    • HTC Desire Wallpapers
    • And whatever else there is that I can't think of...

    e.g. "Well, my dear Lmkt, regular icons are usually 58*74 pixels and should be in jpg or png format."


    Thanks a bunch, comrades.

    Png for icons. No idea on size. They always end up the right size for me anyway.

    Hmm, all right, thanks for the answer. There should be a standard size for icons though, shouldn't it?

    What you mean is if the icon ends up being bigger than the standard size, its size will be reduced appropriately to fit the slot without pixellization?
