Confused Default Wallpaper Size?

I have an LG Enlighten & I recently purchased one for my wife. We love the phones, but have a problem with custom wallpapers it seems. I created a custom background for her phone and one for mine in Photoshop CS5. I use the default 320x480 resolution when creating these, so I know that they fit the screen. I upload them to the phone with no problem and then go to set the JPEG as a wallpaper and this is where I have an issue. It makes me crop the JPEG and it cuts out at least half of the image and then sets it. I want the image to show as I created it, not just half of it. Could someone please tell me if there is a separate default resolution for wallpapers? I am getting frustrated.

My guess is that your wallpaper should actually be 640 x 480 with what you want on your home screen centered in a box that is 320 x 480. I hope that works for you.

I had the same problem. I would re-size an image on my computer and transfer it over to my phone. Then on the phone, I went to set it as a wallpaper. But when cropping time came, it cropped off half of the image.

After a bit of trial and error I found the correct resolution for my LG Enlighten. For wallpapers to be displayed where cropping works perfectly to give you the full image. You want 430 x 320.

Here is an image I re-sized to 430 x 320. Try it out.
