    Is anyone feeling generous enough to make a University of Georgia wallpaper with a pure black background and old school Uga face in the center? It would be greatly appreciated.

    1280x720 is the visible screen resolution. But the wallpaper scrolls slightly each time you swipe to the sides.

    So the real resolution for a proper 1:1 wallpaper is 1440x1280. However, any size above that should be able to be cropped by the phone. Haven't tried it yet, though.

    Android can scale most any reasonable sized image. I usually just do an image search on a topic or style with a size constraint of large or one of the smaller megapixel options.

    1440x1280 is the proper width but it is too tall. I figured this out by making an image that size then setting the wallpaper. The cropper took some off the bottom. 1200 was still slightly too tall. I'm thinking 1180 should be just about the right height to grab the whole image. I ran out of time last night to try it though. But we should figure that out and then try to be consistent with image sizes.

    I have a bunch of pics that I took of my phone and would like to use them as my wallpaper. I can't figure out how to get them to the perfect size. Any help??

    on xda some were saying 1440x1184 but the correct size is indeed 1440x1280. i have some loaded on my phone now and i'm able to select the entire picture.
    further evidence of this being the correct size...
    /data/system/wallpaper_info.xml says 1440x1280 :)

    edit: the 96 pixel diff is because of the software buttons. what this means is that the correct sized wallpaper at 1440x1280 is being cut off by the software buttons at 96 pixels. with this being said, to view an entire wallpaper without any being hidden by the software buttons, you'd need to crop an image to 1440x1184 and then add 96 blank pixels to the bottom. hope this makes sense.

    Yeah that makes sense. Funny thing is, after reading this and trying it out, my cropper is acting differently now. If I use a 1440x1280, it allows me to select the whole thing. Oh well. Anyway, here is my contribution :)

    In ICS on a 720x1280 screen with no hardware buttons (so HTC Rezound will have a bit of a wallpaper advantage after it updates) the bottom 96 pixels will be covered up by the softkeys. Likewise the top 50 pixels will be covered by the notification bar. The wallpaper is still there under these bars and only becomes visible when you dim the full screen clock (or at least until someone mods these bars to be transparent/semi-transparent).
