Has anyone designed graphics for mobile phone websites?

Is anybody familiar with designing for mobile phones? Are there any guidelines as far as height and width go? what about quality and file type? Do mobile phones support .png graphics?

I think depends on what type of mobile phones that you targeted because mainly when you talk about smart phones right now it can support .png file graphics but flash is not supported on some mobile phones.

Adobe stopped Flash support for mobile devices..

Really it depends on which kinda of phones you're talking about. Because smartphones that actually can see mobile sites, use Mobile Opera or iOS Safari, so you've gotta learn how those browsers operate to learn how you should design for those types of sites. Yes, .png is supported but the sizes may be a bit big, .jpg may be better for mobi sites to cut down on data

I can say that Many people are using the graphic designing through mobile phones. If it is android and something else then It must be working to support the every software which are related to graphic designing courses.

I always go with plain ones for mobile sites as the different kinds of screens, OS and resolutions make it a pain in the butt.

There are so many phones available that it is hard to say a specific size. I use what Google recommends for mobile sites - responsive web design. That way no matter what odd size someone is using, they still get a good user experience. I start with 300 pixels as the minimum width (iPhone 3G has a 320 pixel wide screen) in my media queries and use fluid layouts that size up with percentages.

Yes, pretty much all smartphones support PNG files, and the majority have good browsers that support CSS2 and even some CSS3, so you can get fancy with gradients and rounded corners if you want. Just try to limit extra details like that so that the site loads quickly.
