    Hey guys,

    Nothing major really.

    But i have a picture i want to set as my background. Unfortunatly i want to keep it so it shows the whole picture on one homescreen, and doesnt change as i slide to other screens. If i have it spread accross all 7 of my homescreens it looks terrible. Any way of making it stick in the postition its in??

    The easiest fudge around would be just to make a new image composed of seven copies side by side

    Theres an awesome gallery replacement app i use called QuickPic... its much faster than the standard gallery, doesn't have the resolution bug, and if you use it to set a wallpaper it keeps it static between page switches ;)

    I still use the normal gallery from time to time, for picasa etc. but its definately worth having QuickPic for speed, and the ability to zoom in on photos without them blurring!

    on the standard samsung gallery when setting picture size there are two boxes. the right one is for single screen picture.

    The stock gallery app doesn't directly apply the wallpaper even if it is of the correct size, causing graphical error, which is especially noticeable if the wallpaper has a colour gradient. Using wallpaper set and save from the market overcomes this issue.

    When the stock gallery renders an image in full screen, it renders it at a lower resolution. The resolution should increase as you pinch to zoom in, so as to keep clarity. This doesn't happen however... try it, save a super high res (like 12 megapixel) image onto your phone and your PC. Zoom in on each, and look at the quality difference. The image will be MUCH sharper/clearer on the PC. Now, download QuickPic from the market and load the same picture into it. Zoom in, and you'll notice it now looks as good as on your PC screen.
