i'm using an app so that I can have a different background image on each screen and trying to make titled backgrounds.

For example - Home page with a house icon and the word home, media with a music note icon, etc. I created one document 2400px x 800px (5 screens) so that they flow well from one to the next and sliced them up to 480 x 800 segments and assigned them to each screen, but the alignment and colors seem a little off from screen to screen. Not sure if the phone renders i weird.

are these the correct dimensions? what resolution should phone images be? has anyone done this before successfully (or unsuccessfully)?

first of all, neato.

second, remember the dock bar and the notification bar. they will change the image some. some launchers like launcher pro let you mess around with a little.
