    1 thing I hate about the incredible is that I can't make a wallpaper fit to screen. Every wallpaper I find comes out too big and fuzzy. This drives me crazy. I don't know why I can't just make one fit to the screen.

    Is there something I'm doing wrong? I've even tried using the recommended 960x800 dimensions.

    Please help!

    You're expanding the selection box to its maximum size, right?

    Are you using the green sizing box to select it all when you do the Set as?

    Yeah I'm the selection box to the max size... but it doesn't select all of it.

    Every wallpaper I have used (that was sized correctly) has worked great.

    Can you get us some links to the wallpaper you are trying to use?

    If it's not getting "all of it", then you are not stretching it out to the max size. You need to grab the corners of the box and stretch it all the way out.

    It never stretches out to the end of pictures.

    I'm pretty sure you're getting the wrong resolution wallpapers. You need to fine wallpapers made to fit your screen. That wallpaper is way too narrow. It was made for the iSuck, I mean iPhone

    Like I said... When you are using the correct size wallpaper, it works just fine. This one you are linking is 320x480. That HALF the size it should be. When you try to stretch an image to more than twice it's size of course it's going to come out fuzzy and distorted :rolleyes:

    And the reason that it won't allow you to even select the whole image is because it will only allow you to select the supported aspect ratio. 960x800 and 320x480 are not the same aspect ratio...

    No, the same thing happens when I use any image of the correct size. I fully expand the selection box but it only covers like 3/4 of the image. Then when I click save the image is big and fuzzy.

    Okay... then once again...

    Please give me an example of a wallpaper that you are trying to use that is actually the correct size and let me see if I can help you.
