How to make retina images?

Hi, I needed to know how do you make retina display images in CS6? And does the image deteriorate when you drag in into gamesalad?

    Just make them double size... if you have an actor 100x100px just prepare 200x200px image for this actor.

    But they come out a lil choppy in gamesalad.

    1. make sure resolution independence is turned on
    2. design your artwork 2x as large as the actor (so a 100px actor should have artwork that is 200px, as @danieldoe said)
    3. ENSURE that all artwork is divisible by 4. (200/2 is 100, which is the size of the actor. 100/2 is 50 which is the pixel it will center on when placed in the game, you can't rest on .5 a pixel, it can turn out blurry)
    4.Drag artwork into GS and program as normal.

    if you're doing anything else, you could be messing it up
