    First of all, I am a total noob and I sincerely apologize if this post is not welcome. But I've searched all over Google and then spent hours on this forum looking for an answer to my question and I'm desperate.

    I'm running stock, not rooted. Running LauncherPro.

    I made a few wallpapers for my new Samsung Moment. They are .png files, which should be fine. They are 640 X 480, which -according to everywhere on the net - seems to be the required dimensions to work.

    When I upload them to my phone and then set them as wallpapers I am making sure to pull the crop box all the way to the edges.

    Yet, the wallpapers come out very grainy and pixelated.

    Is there a trick I'm missing? It just seems there *has* to be a way to use your own creations as wallpapers.

    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. I'm am honestly ready to pull out my hair.

    Try a higher resolution... The phone will automatically resize or compress the pic as needed to fit the screen.

    I've taken raw 8mp pics and set them with no problems.

    I've never made any custom wall papers on my moment but i would have to agree with ovrrdrive. When you stretch an image at lower resolutions is where you get the graininess(not sure if this a word but its early so sounds good to me), the solution - add more pixels per sqaure inch aka higher resolution.

    Thank you for the suggestion, but even at 300 ppi the picture is being resized or something so that it is blurry.

    But again, thank you very much.
