My web designer/programmer is out of town and I would need to get an answer to my question.
We are creating a WordPress theme with LOTS of different backgrounds.
I thought it would be a good idea to use CSS sprites.
The image sizes are for example:
15000 x 500px
980 x 8000 px
The plan is that these images will cover almost all static backgrounds on the site, to achieve speed. And since the image size doesn’t exceeds 150 kb I figure that the pixel size won’t matter. Am I right? Or does pixel size matter? Are there any limits on pixel size for backgrounds?
Would it make any difference at all if the image was:
5 000 x 500px
