    So I'm a bit confused by android wallpapers ...

    The screen is a vertical rectangle, I want to use a vertical rectangle picture as my wallpaper, but it makes me crop it into a horizontal rectangle before setting it as my wallpaper, and it ends up looking like shit

    I have scrolling wallpaper turned off, so it's the same vertical rectangle for every home page, why can't I just use the whole picture as my wallpaper?

    Is there any workaround to this?

    You are using a custom launcher, then, because by default you can pick a 540x960 wallpaper to use with Sense. I've had some luck picking the wallpaper in Sense after having turned off scrolling in the custom launcher (LauncherPro, or Go Launcher is what I've tried). Then switch back to your launcher after picking it in Sense and it should stick.

    i've been wondering the same thing. i hate how i have to crop a tiny ass part of the pic instead of it allowing me to use the whole picture. any help with this would be appreciated. oh, and i'm running a rooted sense rom, and i still have this problem.


    Edit*:

    found an app called wallpaper wizardrii. free on the market. allows you choose how the image looks as your wallpaper. really like it so far

    Ah, might have to check this out. My current workaround it to just doctor the image in paint to have a giant-ass boarder on both sides so then I can just zoom in on the real picture haha

    No because I'm not stretching the image, I'm just adding extra pixels to each side, then chopping them off later on.

    What DOES make it look grainy is when you have to zoom in to an arbitrary square on a picture so you're inherently stretching it out :mad:
