    Does anyone know of a method/launcher that allows you to have a different wallpaper image for each screen?

    Also, if that's not possible, is there a way or a launcher with the option to lock the wallpaper so that it doesn't slide when going from screen to screen?

    Thanks, everyone!

    This was discussed a long time ago (like 8 months), and someone pointed out that it would not be possible because of the way the home screens work. The background is 960 x 851 IIRC, but the home screen itself is 480 x 851. With 3 home screens, that would be a total width of 1440 rather than 960. The screen itself scrolls much further than the background image does. With more screens (for those using a home replacement or a different ROM) that ratio becomes even greater. 5 screens is 2400 x 851, 7 screens is 3360 x 851... the whole while, the background image still remains 960 x 851.

    LauncherPro just updated and now you can set it not to slide when you scroll through home screens.

    You are in luck. There is an app on the market called MultiPicture Live Wallpaper that allows you to choose a diff static image for up to seven screens and loads of transition options between screens. As long as I've had Launcher Pro I've been able to set the backround to not move while scrolling between screens. Hope this helps.

    If I install that app would I have to redo all my shortcuts?

    I was playing around with it, and had the different Lantern Corps symbols as different wallpapers for each home screen set to crossfade, and it looks badass...

    What I ended up doing was downloading a program called Turtle Picture Frame. I'm dedicating one screen to a special calender that I wanted. I don't want anything over it so it's better than a wallpaper for my purposes.

    On the other hand it would be nice to have a different picture on every window.

    What resolution picture is ideal for one screen in Multipicture Live Wallpaper?

    All of your widgets, shortcuts and folders remained on the screens where they were before after you run Multipicture Live Wallpaper?

    You actually got a different wallpaper to exactly fill each screen separately...so you have 5 wallpapers now?
