Hi light touch - welcome to AF.

I'm not sure what you mean by a 3 part template or that your phone has four parts. Are you talking about the number of home screens?

Anyway, the general rule of thumb for Android wallpapers is that the wallpaper should ideally be the same height of your phones screen resolution and twice as wide. So for the Galaxy Ace, with a screen resolution of 320w x 480h, the wallpaper is best at 640w x 480h.

Here's a template that size:

The red area is what will be on the center screen if you have an odd number of home screens. Since I think you're saying that you have 4 screens, I'm not quite sure where the home screen will be. But if you set this template as your wallpaper, you should be able to gauge by the lines what area the home screen occupies on a standard 640x480 wallpaper.

Hope that helps, and get back to me if you need any clarification.
