    I am so sick of the little crop window you stretch to only see a portion of your photo and it's being reviewed at full screen size. I saw someone post that you grab the upper left and bottom right corners to stretch the window, but it did not work for me. Thanks in advance.

    Agreed. Android has a miserable means of formatting photos to fit the screen properly. I gave up trying when I had the Incredible. The whole process should be so simple. The whole process should be a one click affair. It is NOT!

    Look for an app called wallpaper set and save. Works like a charm.

    I haven't had any problems, put finger in center of box, slide to upper right corner of pic, move finger to lower left corner and slide outwards, I thought it was pretty simple.

    Sniper, I don't know what size photos its working for you with, but it only gives me a portion of the photo when stretched all the way.

    Godcountrynd, I dl'd wallpaper set save and the pics are still not fitting on the entire screen like when I preview a picture, this time it was huge. Am I missing something?

    Guys, the reason for the cropping box when you set a wallpaper is that the wallpaper you're trying to set is not the same aspect ratio of the device. If it were to ignore the aspect ratio, it would make your wallpaper appear "fat" or "tall", sometimes extremely so.

    Why not have a fixed image instead of one that scrolls with the changing of home screens?

    If photo resizing is required, what's the easiest way to resize them to the correct size, from my phone?

    okay I figured out a way :D
    1st - u need "andWobble wallpaper"
    2nd - just add image from gallery (WITHOUT adding a wobble)
    3rd - after adding pic just press "set wallpaper"
    *** OG pics size = 480x800

    my examples pics :D

  12. I AGREE, Its an awful process on Android. I took a photo with the phone of my corvette and framed it really nice and then selected it as wall paper only to find the program blows the photo up and now half the car is missing on the wall paper. I have NEVER EVER had a phone do this before. No matter how hard I tried to use the green frame thingy it didn't work. I ended up having to stand waaaay back from the car so the car looked tiny in the shot but when it was submitted for wall paper it was then up sized and looked close to my originally normal framed photo. Wall paper on this phone is REALLY F**KED UP!

    Just isn't so. All of my wallpapers are 480x800 for my Incredible and it still makes me crop.

    Wallpaper has to be 960x800 if you don't want to crop.

    As the above poster said, you need 960x800. The 960 comes in because the wallpaper scrolls left/right when you change screens on the home. If you make a 960x800 one, you can make it perfectly sized, no cropped off edges.

    Also, for those that are lazy, 1280x1024 wallpapers for PCs are VERY CLOSE to the same ratio (very little is cropped).

    Yep. Had to find this info elsewhere however. I'm going to thank your post though because it's important.

    I resized all of mine I was having issues with.

    its been said twice in the beginning of the forum. There are apps in the market that do all of it for you. Pick the pic and it re-sizes it perfectly for you. I'm using "Wallpaper maker" and its working perfect.

    In addition to the pathetic browser, adding images to the home screen is also a painful, ridiculous process on the Android OS.
