What resolutions are standard for digital device wallpaper designs?


Question

What seems to be the most popular resolution that wallpaper comes in for desktop wallpaper? I am a digital artist so I want people to download my wallpaper. What resolution should I offer it in to encourage that?

I'm not just making wallpaper for desktops, I'm also trying to fit it in small devices like smartphones and other devices.

I'm not just focusing on a particular device indeed I want for all device (which has a screen and are wallpaper capable).

Please tell me exact number of wallpaper that I will have to make.

320 x 480 is a very common resolution for mobile phones.

Here is a big list of a lot of phones and their resolutions. Maybe it'll help give you an idea of what's out there.

For desktops

Full Screen:

  • 800 x 600
  • 1024 x 768
  • 1280 x 960
  • 1280 x 1024
  • 1600 x 1200

Widescreen:

  • 1280 x 720
  • 1280 x 800
  • 1440 x 900
  • 1680 x 1050
  • 1920 x 1080
  • 1920 x 1200

1024 x 768, 1280 x 1024, 1920 x 1080 are pretty common to the best of my knowledge. But obviously the more resolutions you support, the more compatible your wallpaper becomes -- the drawback is that it requires more work for you.
