    What Is The Best Image Pixel Size For iPad 2?

    I just purchased an iPad 2 64Gb. I want to add photographs to my iPad. I want the photographs to completely fill the screen but still be small enough to use the minimum amount of memory space. A smaller image size will also make them more responsive when navigating between images.

    Does anyone know the image pixel dimensions that I should use to have the photographs completely fill the iPad screen? I am assuming a resolution of 72 pixels per inch is sufficient because the screen is essentially a video screen.

    Thanks!

    Dpi (or ppi) is irrelevant. Dpi only applies to print size. We're talking pure pixel size here only.

    The optimum photo size is the iPad size - 1024x768, and in a decent jpg compression. With this size your iPad will simply swim through all your photos effortlessly.

    But, in reality, the iPad is fluid and fast enough to effortlessly display and sort through photos of any shape and size. No conversion necessary. Try it.

    Also, iTunes converts your images to a device friendly resolution when you synchronise photos, so you really don't need to do anything to your source material at all.
