Android icons for different displays and screen densities

I’m completely confused to the core reading various articles to understand to get my app to fit in to different screen sizes. basically the issue i am having is to have a logo fit in to screens with different screen densities. I’ve got an image with a resolution of 1616×369 which fits in to Nexus 7″ tablet and nexus 10″ tablets I guess because they contain hdpi screen densities(which looks perfectly fine). but if I change the preview on eclipse to a 10″ wxvga screen size which seem to contain an mdpi resolution the image gets pixelated. I know this is because I haven’t specified an image in the mdpi folder for android to pick it up, hence it picks up the image from the hdpi folder. What I don’t understand is to what resolutions should I create images for mdpi and ldpi folders based on my original image.

Answer

I’m not exact sure where I got this information from, but I believe there is a link to it within the Iconography | Android Development documentation.

     mdpi   48x48 px    32x32 px    16x16 px            24x24 px
     hdpi   72x72 px    48x48 px    24x24 px            36x36 px
