Resolution Guide

Which resolution is right for me?

Devices come in a variety of different screen aspect ratios and resolutions. The aspect ratio is determined by the width and height of the screen on your device. 16:9 is common for widescreen TV's, PC monitors and laptops. 16:10 is also used on some PC laptops, MacBooks, Android tablets, and some older PC monitors. 4:3 is mainly used by iPads, with older CRT style monitors and TV's. Finally 3:2 is relatively new with some tablets and laptops utilising this aspect ratio like Microsoft's Surface products.

If you are looking for phone wallpapers, we now offer sizes tailored just for phones in all our new galleries. For older cars with no phone wallpapers available, usually the 4:3 aspect wallpapers work best.

Aspect ratio chart.

As you can see in the diagram, a 16:9 wallpaper will not have enough vertical height when used on any of the other aspect ratios. This can be mitigated by zooming in the wallpaper to fill the height of the screen, but this will chop off the sides.

We recommend choosing the correct aspect ratio wallpaper for your device to avoid any distortion or cropping. Consult the chart below to match the resolution and aspect ratio of your device, then take note of the listed resolutions to download.
