I'm putting together a wallpaper website for Mac owners and I wanted to know what screen resolutions I should accommodate.

Here are the popular resolutions my site will definitely support:
1280 by 800 (MacBook)
1440 by 900 (MacBook Pro)
1680 by 1050 (iMac 20")
1920 by 1200 (iMac 24")

Am I missing any?

800x600 (yes, people still use this)

Those were taken from what supports.

1600x1200 is in common use these days on external monitors. Those of us that have PowerMacs and Mac Pros would be most grateful if you would include that resolution too!

I use 1440x900 on my MBP and 1680x1050 on my external screen, but I would want to view a site on e.g. school or work computers which are generally not widescreen... 1024x768 is probably very important, any site should at least work in that res even if its not optimal. - forum for fun people

You should do at least 2 sizes, 1920x1200, and 1600x1200, those will be usable by the largest amount of people. If their resolution is smaller, then they can shrink it. If they aree lucky enough to have a 30in display, then they can send me one .

Or you could just do 2560x1600 and 1600x1200. Big widescreen, big 4:3. Smaller screens will scale.

But for a 1440*900 resolution user, a 2560*1600 image would be a waste of bandwidth and space. I think a few of those high res images should be done, otherwise 1920*1200 should do fine for widescreen...
