Re-directed to this thread from here: http://forum.skins.be/viewtopic.php?t=866

Another vote for 1280x1024 here. 1280x960 just doesn't look right (is it just me?!) Add to that that most 17" LCD screens use the 1280x1024 resolution, and i think many will concur it is a more popular resolution.

In fact i've just done some research for you (however, i suspect your site statistics would answer this question...). Anyway, see below:

Source 1:

These are the percentages of each screen resolution for WebproWorld.com

1. 1024x768-----50.45%
2. 800x600------27.96%
3. 1280x1024----9.60%
4. 1152x864-----4.49%
5. 1600x1200----2.14%
6. 1280x960-----1.25%
7. 1400x1050----1.05%
8. 640x480------0.71%
9. 1152x870-----0.40%
10. 1280x768-----0.19%


Source 2:

This is what I have so far this year (Olivier Onorato, Webmaster Defender Industries, Inc):

1024 x 768 120973 44.78%
800 x 600 102251 37.85%
1280 x 1024 16230 6%
1152 x 864 6934 2.56%
640 x 480 4075 1.5%
1400 x 1050 4040 1.49%
1600 x 1200 3460 1.28%
1280 x 960 914 0.33%
1152 x 870 715 0.26%
1152 x 768 709 0.26%
832 x 624 519 0.19%
1280 x 854 475 0.17%
1600 x 1024 389 0.14%
1440 x 900 362 0.13%
2048 x 768 257 0.09%
1280 x 768 236 0.08%
560 x 420 200 0.07%
960 x 720 168 0.06%
2560 x 1024 163 0.06%
2800 x 1050 151 0.05%
1920 x 1200 147 0.05%
720 x 480 118 0.04%
800 x 553 108 0.03%



I think my point stands. 1280x960 is barely used and sucks. Big thumbs up for 1280x1024 (this should be the next standard resolution after 1024x768) (1024x768 took over the lead over the past two years from 800x600).

Site admin care to comment? :)

I think the higher resolution the better. Images still look good when the are shrunk rather than degrading enlargements

we want widescreen added

We want wide screen resolutions added in addition to normal resolution. Normal resolutions are 4:3 aspect ratio. Some of us have upgraded to nicer screens that use the widescreen format 16:9. For instance my 20 inch apple cinema display uses the 1680x1050 resolution 23 inch uses 1920x1200 and 2560x1600 for the 30 inch apple display. we already have high resolution 4:9 resolutions we just want some widescreen resolutions in addition. I say suppot 2560x1600 if possible but at minimal 1680x1050. We dont want the most widley used resolution we want a resolution that fits 16:9 screens.

Solution to the Widescreen problem

I have a 1280x800 HP and, (widescreen rocks) normally i just crop the walpapers down to my resolution, however it is rather annoying if you are cutting out some really nice parts of the lady, you know what i'm sayin? WIDESCREEN WALLPAPER PLEASE?

I find it stupid that they are leaving the standard of 4x3.
It means that everything has to change. Most programs are build for 4x3 resolutions.
They don't even chose a new standard. Mostly they are all different.

I think all wallpapers should be posted in 1600x1200 only. XP resizes them when it puts them up anyways, so why waste space.
As for widescreen users, they should invest in some basic photo editing tool to crop the images themselves.
