Some of the images I've tried to use are cut off towards the bottom. I am using the Guestbook app on an iPad. What size and resolution is best?

This is a great question! The screen resolution for a background image would be 768 pixels wide, by 1024 pixels high. That should match the screen size on the iPad.
Hi Ben,

I've tried this resolution (I'm using iPad 3) and, unfortunately, that resulted in some pixelation. I also tried to increase the artwork size proportionally (993 x 1324px) which was still a bit blurry but less so. Now I've adjusted the artwork to match the original size of an ipad screenshot (1536 x 2048px) and that is less blurry but some parts still look a tad fuzzy. Is there a way of preventing this or does image quality get lowered when it's loaded into the app?

Hey there! I’m so sorry for our delay in getting back to you! Is this pixelation still happening?

If so, it sounds like the iPad screenshot is quite large. What is its dpi?
