does size of image for list style need pre-fitment?

I was wondering when you apply a list style image, does the image hour placing have to be profited or at a certain size to place it there, or does the browser automatically adjust its size??

Hi Travis.

I like to use a higher-resolution image that is actually bigger than what I need. Images will appear detailed and sharp if optimized for higher-resolution screens(like Retine Display), but if not, they can look blurry or grainy. That's just NOT something you want. You will need to adjust the background size to bring it back to the size you need using the background-image property. To answer your question... no, the browser will not resize for you.

Cheers! I hope this will help you. Guillaume
