    There is an app called Widget Locker that lets you place widgets, custom sliders, wallpapers, etc on your lock screen. Here is a pic of my lock screen and the main home screen on my Droid X. The lock screen pic is older, that's why the notification bar and icons are different.

    Open Widget Locker, press menu >Look & Feel >Place a check mark next to Alternate Wallpaper, then Select Wallpaper.

    Crop the wallpaper on your PC using an editing programme like Irfanview then load the cropped version back to your phone. Or just crop the wallpaper from your stock gallery app options.
