    I hadn't thought about that before. :rolleyes:

    Maybe if you use a program on a pc to 'shrink' the full pic to the same size the phone requires, it will work?

    I've shrunk stuff in Photoshop and changed it to 72 DPI. and it still gets cropped.

    I think the phone might just have a set area.

    If you were to add a white border around the pic to the same ratio the phone crops out, that should get around it...

    Mine crops in a cross shape, one bar for portait, one for landscape so one crop fits all.
