    Hope the title is as it should be. I'm not sure how to put this so I'll try my best.

    When you have a picture as your wallpaper do you notice that when sliding between the screens they move ever so slightly?

    For example, I have an image of the lion in my avatar perfectly in the centre of my home screen, yet when I move the screen to the left or right it seems to move the image and cut some off. Is there a way around this?

    I've seen it on some people's screen shots but I'm not sure how to do it with a picture that you decide to use as a homescreen.

    No worries if it can't be done. It would just be nice, that's all.

    P.S - Still loving my desire and android!

    OK. The image you set as your wallpaper is actually for all 7 screens and not just your main/central screen. As such, when you move left and right to the other screens you scroll across the image slightly.

    I believe there is at least one launcher that allows, possibly with another app, to have seperate images on each screen.

    Hope that helps :)

    As an additional point, if you use LauncherPro, you can tell it so keep the background image static :)
