    Basically the above is the horrendous situation were you cannot reduce the image size and problem we have nowadays with mobile phones. You find an image you want to set as your home lockscreen or wallpaper and although you can zoom in on a file, you cannot zoom out, and thus you are forced to crop and it becomes a huge mess because you cannot fit in the screen the picture that you want, why the hell is this? I mean you can zoom in with pictures, but not zoom out?

    Oh lord, is there any smart android developer who can please implement a solution to galleries and set as image in browsers, that can also 'reduce' the image size by zooming out, so that we don't have to do cropping on our modern mobile phones? And just say ' zoom out, then set image as wallpaper. So that the picture will fit without hassling!

    This cannot be accomplished no matter what device you are using.
    Phone screens are in "portrait mode" and most wallpapers are in "landscape", so in order to fit your device, you will have the sides cropped off or space on top and bottom. There is an app in the play store that may help, called Image2wallpaper that works for me, but to answer the question, no, there's no magic bullet that does what you want.

    Thank you so much for the Image2wallpaper app reference, this is exactly what i was looking for, it's mindboggling that this isn't standard included in the gallery options, this app does exactly what i want it to do, namely resizing it to a smaller size and enabling me to fit it in the background as i see fit.
