The Correct Size for a WordPress Theme Screenshot is 880×660

I see misinformation on this far too often.

The WordPress screenshot is shown at 387×290.  But, the recommended size is 880×660.  This information is freely available on the WordPress Codex.

Why 880×660?  Because certain devices have high pixel density displays (HiDPI) which, in a nutshell, will show more pixels in the same space to provide a crisper image.  By making your WordPress theme screenshot 880×660 you are allowing for these high pixel density displays.
