UPDATE [May 25th, 2020]: The newer version of the ADI plugin is compatible with Android Studio 3.6 and above
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
Download the installation zip from here, 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 > press on the little gear icon and select Install Plugin from Disk…
Select the zip file you downloaded before, and press Open
After the installation, 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!
