Hello cassandranne, and welcome to Android Forums.

You can use your file manager to move things around. "My Files" is the stock app in many Android devices. Better yet are the many 3rd party file managers available in Market, most free.

You'll have to go in and explore for a while, to learn what is where. But it's well worth the trouble. You'll find folders with names such as "media," "wallpapers," "backgrounds," etc. It can be a bit daunting, but once you figure out where the stock wallpapers are in your device, you can start moving other pics to that folder.

To me, the best way to do that sort of thing is using a computer. Make sure your USB debugging is checked, in menu > settings > applications > development. Also make sure you select to not "charge only" when you connect your USB cable from your phone to the USB port on your computer.

You can explore and manipulate files that way once you have the drivers for your device installed on your computer:

[Drivers] MS Windows x86 and x64 USB Drivers for Samsung Galaxy S - xda-developers

Those driver files are for Windows. If you have a Mac or Linux box you'll need to do a search.

Good luck. Have fun.

Confused

thanks for that.. i've pretty much gone through every option in every folder (did on computer) but no luck in finding where these files are stored...

i guess if i cant figure this out, anyone know any wallpaper apps that dont crop and actually display the whole picture? thanks

i may be preaching to the converted, but you do know you can make the box that selects the part of the picture bigger?. drag the corner out.

I started using MultiPicture Live Wallpaper which not only allowed a full image to load, but can swap them from page to page with transition effects.

Problem with this - rebooting the phone. It seems to lose track of the folder you use to select the images from so you have to run thru tons of configuration screens to re-select it. I figure this is because its on the SD card, and all the media scanning isn't done yet as it attempts to load images, which is why I am here, trying to find out where a nice place would be to stick a folder of images onto the phone memory with the rest of them.
