Default Resolutions Chart

This is a quick chart that's very useful when you have to know the destination of your images- create different versions of the same image so it will be compatible with most of the popular resolutions.

One example of this is when making a wallpaper, but you want it to be compatible with both the squarish and widescreen aspect ratios(5:4, 16:9). And it's useful if you want to scale the things up a bit.


Found it on my computer, and don't remember where I got it. Probably on Wikipedia.

Also, for a more complete list of default resolutions, check this table on wikipedia.

I'm am going to post the most popular 16:9 resolutions here though, I think they're useful enough to be interesting to everyone.
