Imaging Best Practices

I am new to BlackBerry development and I haven't been able to find much information on using images in an application. I want to hear what has worked and what has not worked from the community. For example, I currently want to know what kind of images should be used for backgrounds, what dimensions work and look the best on different devices, and how to set it in the code. I'm also going to have images in my application that need to change as the user moves through the application. What format of images work best for this? What file sizes are acceptable? How do you do it in the code? etc. So, I want to hear about your experiences and I want to see code samples, preferrably samples that work with the latest SDK.
