Hey Rahul,

You don't have to resize any images to be honest. But I usually only resize the power menu icons to 24x24 so that they're all the same size. Also the notification bar icons to the same size, 16x16 or 8x8, because otherwise some icons look huge in comparison to others.

For instance, the gps icon should be the same size as the battery icon. Do you know what I mean?

It's the easiest and most convenient way to resize images. You can also do batch resizes with this tool.
