"Natty" is shorthand for "Natty Narwhal", the codename for Ubuntu 11.04.


Regarding resolution, it's possible to get good results with a single
one, as long as it's only scaled down, never up (scaling down can make
things blurry, too, but not as much). That's why I recommend 2560 x 1600
pixel. For raster images, it can be worthwhile to work in double the
size, as it helps to attain a smooth result, but that takes a lot of

ratios. That's why this exists:

Of course, one could consider to create one version per common aspect
