In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how easily you can resize the icons and images for every screen size (hdpi,mdpi,xhdpi e.t.c) using the plugin Android Drawable Importer.
Installing the plugin
To install the Android Drawable Importer plugin, open your Android Studio and go Android Studio > Preferences… (Mac OS) or File > Preferences… (Windows)
In the new window, choose Plugins from the left column > choose the Marketplace tab and type ‘android drawable importer’ in the search field and press Enter
After the installation has completed, press Restart IDE
Using the plugin
To use the plugin, all you need is the icon in the largest size, for example, if you want to add an icon on the top right of your activity, the size of this icon needs to be 192×192 pixels to support the largest screen(xxxhdpi).
Go to the drawable folder (or whatever folder you want to put it in), and right click > New > Batch Drawable Import
Press the + button
Select your image
In the new window, choose XXXHDPI as Source-Resolution and press OK
and that’s it!
