    I'm trying to do something super simple. Put a personal picture on my wallpaper. However, whenever I select a photo (regardless of if it is in portrait or landscape) to put as my wallpaper, it #1 forces me to crop to landscape even though it should be portrait to fit the wallpaper and #2 when added to my wallpaper is ultra-zoomed in, way more than the crop it requires me to select in #1. What is going on? This should be super simple to do!

    Also, is there a way to save a picture I see online to my albums?

    Thank you!

    When you switch from panel to panel, you notice that the background moves slightly as well. Part of the Sense interface includes this; so extra wallpaper "space" is needed on the left and right of the center of the image. This is why it crops to landscape - it is the only way to get the necessary width in the image to support the left/right moving action.

    Possible solution: Take your image, and edit it with photoshop (or similar). Add a bit of space on the left and right.

    Hope that helps!

    Oh I get what you mean.
    When you apply a wallpaper to your home screen, which isn't as wide as it is tall, it gets magnified, making it look all pixely. That happens, you just have to choose a wallpaper that's wider than it is tall. If it's not wide enough, the phone will automatically magnify it to make it wide enough.
    And when you see a picture you like online, you simply long press with your finger on the picture and click save image.
