9.PNG Drawable Tool

In addition to graphical files, Android supports XML drawables and 9-patch graphics. XML drawables are used to describe shapes (color, border, gradient), state, transitions and more. 9-patch graphics are used to define which part of a graphic should be stretched if the view which uses this graphic is larger than the graphic.
