Android Background Image Resolutions

What?
A reference to what size an image background should be set to for various screen sizes.

Why?
A background image I was using was unedited at 1600x2133 (364kb) and was not displaying on smaller devices. Configuring drawables for each layout seemed to be the only solution.
