    so I snatch this pic from the web and want to use it as a background. But since its a rather close up shot, when applying to wallpaper we are forced with this crop thingy. Its sucks cause it will not let me select the entire picture which results in a zoomed in image on the background instead of a zoomed out entire pic.

    Is there a way around this? I tried making the pic smaller but when it hits the N1 the cropping portion is the same.

    960x800 is the magic resolution you want.

    thanks, now if i can just figure this out. Everytime I try to do this it automatically changes the other side to over 1000 when I enter the 960

    ya, i just did, but I highly doubt this pic is on there at all
     
  5. just any idea to try and help :)

    Sounds like whatever your using to adjust the size is trying to keep the proportions right. Your going to have to either do a little cropping so that you can more or less fit it into the right dimensions, or paste the image into a document of the right size, and then shrink it so that it fits within the boundaries (resulting in the zoomed out picture).

    I hope this is clearer than I think it is.

    Uncheck "preserve aspect ratio"
    Set to 960x800
    Save as .jpg and you're good to go
