    This has made me crazy with the Droid X and now the same thing is happening with the new Prevail. I go to gallery, click on a pic (all on SD card), hit menu, click more, set as wallpaper. The highlighted square comes on the pic, I either click on save or try to make the box go "taller" (as to fill up the home screen better), click save, then when I back out and look at the home screen, the pics look crappy, either blurry or not centered or look way too magnified. WHAT am I doing wrong? :mad: I am not rooted - and have absolutely no clue what all this rooting talk is about - but would that help these wallpaper issues? I just want to be able to see a pic I like show up on the home screen as I see it on a web page that I picked it from and not have the pic blurry, off center, etc. Thanks!

    That lighted square if you expand that it "blows up" the pic causing pixeling You either need a larger ie higher megapixel photo or if the pic isnt big enough have a border around it. If it is off center it is probably because it centers to all screens so if you try to center the pic it is only showing up on the main and the ones to the right of it. To get it really centered you have to goo to the left edge

    Even when I don't expand that square most of the pics look messed up. All of the pics are large enough, so no need for a border. Some were taken with my Sony Cybershot full-size dig camera, so excellent pixels there. I did try moving the square to the left and that worked as far as centering goes, but some still were blurry.

    it is possible the aspect ratio because of the phones small odd sized screen is doing it.
    I have some that appear blurry as well

    I see...I did install a couple of apps that have some decent wallpapers, so I guess I'll stick with those. I played around with a couple of my personal pics, might be just as you said, aspect ratio. Thank you all for your help!
