Large image downscaled vs small image?

I’m planning to make a UI icon through an image, would it be better quality by uploading a 1k image then making it small, and would this impact performance vs, eg. a 256x256 icon instead

Yes, larger images do impact performance. Slower load times and more data to render.

There is no point in making an icon 1k by 1k if it never gets that big. You only need to make the icon as big as it needs to be.

Well, a larger image would impact gameplay rendering and slower load times unlike a small image, it would be useless to make it extra big or extra small. You’ll just need to adjust the image to perfection and see how it does.
