Blog background photo size

Hello! Does Lithium offer any documentation detailing image dimensions throughout the community?

 

I'm specifically looking for the blog background image dimensions. Smiley Happy

@Nava_Schneider - Can you please provide more information?

 

Lithium does convert every image we upload on blogs, messages, articles etc into below dimensions 

 

      "tiny_href" : "px=100",
      "thumb_href" : "px=150",
      "small_href" : "px=200",
      "medium_href" : "px=400",
      "large_href" : "px=999",
      "original_href" : "original size",

Which you can get using below query. 

 

 

 

SELECT * FROM images WHERE messages.id = '<id>'

For author image below are the variations

 

 

 

"profile" : "",
"message" : "",
"inline" : "",
"favicon" : "",
"print" : ""

You can get it using below query.

SELECT avatar from users

 

 

Give kudos if you find my posts helpful or mark solution if it answers your query.

Thank you @TariqGrazitti!

 

Your response is a bit too technical for me to understand comprehensively, but I really appreciate your help.  I was more hoping there was a guide somewhere which states the optimal image size for a blog background image.

Hey @Nava_Schneider Do you have a responsive community? if so absolute dimensions of images are mostly useless as the community should adjust the image size for the screen resolution. I tend to just the best quality, highest resolution image i can find that isnt massive in Kb's

Would it be safe to say some default like 1200X800 is a pretty good starting point because it will be saved in many different sizes for each responsive environment?
