    Wallpaper cropping

    I have tons of wallpapers that look amazing in "gallery" but when I try to select them for use as wallpaper, I have to crop them and then they look like poo when. I get back to the home screen.

    Any fixes?

    I have tried long pressing my homescreen, tried setting as wallpaper while in the gallery, tried disabling scrolling background, nothing seems to work.

    In what way to they look like poo? Are they pixellated? Wrong proportions? Something else?

    Well, the way android works, it scales whatever is selected to 960x800 whether you have only one homescreen or 7. And when the source image is smaller than 960x800 it stretches it to fill that size and makes it look horrible. Personally I always get an image larger than 960x800 so that I can scale it down instead of up so that detail is kept.

    Is that a per phone thing or an all of android thing. I can't imagine and screens that have a smaller resolution than 960x800 having their wallpapers stretched to that resolution.

    960x800 = standard 7 panel home screen. And yep, it's an "all of android" thing, unless you are using LauncherPro.

    Hey my names Anthony and I make wallpapers for Android 2.3 and I make them at an extremely high resolution

    Smallest is at 2160x1800
    Largest is at 3240x2700

    You can use any wallpaer as longs as it fits the wallpaper crop ratio. And is higher resolution than 960x800.
