    Ok, you posted this in my making wallpapers thread, but I'll answer you here as you're more likely to see it. On your phone, open that post with the whole image - http://androidforums.com/android-themes/92348-also-willing-make-wallpapers-16.html#post1599850
    Now, long press on the picture and a box should open up with an option to save the picture. Do so. Now that it's saved on your phone, go to your picture gallery or albums or whatever it's called on your phone, find the picture, select it, and hit Menu on your phone. This should give you the option to "Set as" wallpaper. Got it? Let me know if this isn't clear. Good luck!

    Alternatively, you can download the picture to your PC, connect your phone to pc via usb, turn on usb storage on your phone, then copy the file from your pc to any folder on you sdcard.

    Or if you have a PhotoBucket account, upload the image to PhotoBucket, and use the PhotoBucket app to download it to your phone. This is what I do when I am too lazy to go upstairs and get my USB cord

    Or if your computer has Bluetooth, there is a Bluetooth file transfer app.

    OR... :p If you use Picasa (I do) download Docs Pics Docs Pics v1.3.9 Application for Android | Tools and that will sync pics and a lot more to your phone as well.

    You can also email the pic to yourself from your pc. Then open the email and attached picture on your phone and save it that way. I've done it that way before....

    Or... :) You could take the SD Card out of your phone (turn off phone first!), plug it into a card reader on your computer, transfer them to the card and then replace the card in the phone. Anything else we haven't covered?

    wait wait, you could also open the picture on your computer, take the phone and take a picture of the picture and then open it up on the phone and save as wall paper.

    There, I think we covered them all.

    Not quite... :D

    Or... you could get a friend who knows how to get it on their phone, and use an app such as Bump Bump v1.3.1 Application for Android | Social to transfer it to your phone.

    You can also install the Zedge wallpaper and ringtone app, that wallpaper is on there.
