    I can't seem to get a picture to fit the actual lockscreen on the Driod Eris. If I save a picture from the internet, the entire picture wont fit. I can't use any wallpaper apps that I have downloaded, they are all just for the background. (If there are any apps that does lockscreens let me know.) I dont know If im being stupid but I just cant get a picture for my lockscreen. If anyone could help, I would appreciate it. Thank you

    I dont understand the posts about wallpaper or lockscreen image size. Whenever I set either, I get a green box over the image I selected that is the correct aspect ratio, I can then change the size of that rectangle to be bigger or smaller, cropping the image to the correct aspect ratio.

    @ OP, dont you get the same thing?

    yea i get that green box; however, i cannot adjust the green box to fit the entire picture when i download. The picture is always bigger thenthe green box no matter what i seem to do, so i can only set like half the picture as my lockscreen. When i do this for my background, this problem does not exist. Only have trouble fitting a picture to my lockscreen...

    You cant change the size of the green box, or the aspect ratio? Try draging the corner of the green box and see if it gets bigger. If the image you are trying to use is wider than it is tall, the sides will have to be cropped.

    For the lock screen:
    1. from your home screen select the menu button
    2. select wallpaper
    3. select lock screen
    4. select your wallpaper.

    It should not ask to size with the green box. Your wallpaper has to be 320x480 for the lock screen.
    try that link. They have hundreds of wallpapers already sized. I downloaded a few and tested them and they work perfect for the lock screen. The desktop however is a different story. I am still trying to figure that one out.

    It doesn't let me change the size of the box either. I just resized my images to fit the screen :)

    After a serious brain freeze I figured out the whole wallpaper thing. I really felt like an idiot after I did.

    Lock screens are 320x480 and take the whole screen.
    Wallpapers are 640x480 and span across all 7 screens. Not just applied to each screen. Put a wallpaper that is 640x480 on your system. Like a photo of a car. Now pan from screen 1 to 7, you will see what I mean.
