    Hey guys... what should the dimensions of a picture I want put as my wallpaper? The ones that I've tried are apparently too big and don't fit to the screen.

    I've even tried the 960x800 but that doesn't fit either.

    960 x 800 is the correct size.

    960x800 is the correct size, when you go to "set ass wallpaper" you have to stretch the selection box out to cover the whole 960x800

    If i use the 960x800 (or whatever size was said in here)

    would it work whether i have 3 screens, or 7?

    it should work for whatever size you have, you just resize the box around the image to your desired size.

    yeah pretty much just find something you like and you can drag the box to pick what is cropped out and what the size will be

    the biggest size that i can use in "landscape resize" is 720 x 540; is there a way to set a custom size like 960 x 800 that we need and ....if i was using a 8 megapixel pic taken using the droid what percentage smaller would i use?

    If you get the program paint.NET (Which is free) you can resize any picture you want, to any size you want.

    I have been using Irfanview (which lets you do whatever size you want)for years...and when I used other for my blackberry wallpapers which are small I had no problem.but now I do making them for this phone they always look pixelated.

    For anyone that hasn't seen it, I like using this website:

    HTC Droid Incredible Wallpaper Maker - Hellaphone

    ...to make wallpapers. It is free, and it saves me the trouble of opening Photoshop and going through the steps to resize them myself. So far it has worked really well for me.

    the option to the far right title "advanced tools" gives you the option to set your own 960x800
