splash screen too large

I'm struggling with a dumb problem I can't seem to fix. I've created a custom splash screen image. But, it's showing too large in the emulator … probably 20% or so larger so that the edges all around are outside of the screen area.

The image is 320 x 480. I've tried at both 96 & 72 dpi. In fact, I started with the stock Default.png and edited it with Photoshop to create my custom image.

I used the same PSD file to also create a background image for the app itself. That image shows up correctly, at the right scale.

Any suggestions?

  • I tried resizing the Default.png to 300x450 and the now-smaller image just gets stretched. So, it's still showing up too large but now is all pixelated. Arg!

    If you are able to upload your image file somewhere and post the link here, I would be happy to try to get this working as you expect.

    • At the moment, I don't recall what I did to work around this. Something about the top being cut off, rather than the image being stretched as I thought. It seems I had to leave a 20 px or so empty space at the top in order for the contents of the splash image to all be visible. I'll add another comment here if I remember the exact particulars.
