    I put some wallpaper artwork I had on my PC onto my MicroSD card, so I could have some really nice wallpapers on my RAZR, and when I try to set them as wallpaper they have to be cropped down. Alright, I think to myself, that makes sense because of how huge they are & their size (width/height). I cropped 'em on Photoshop so they fit (or so I thought) but when I try to set them as my wallpaper on the phone, it tries to still crop them up before using it.

    The problem is this; the wallpaper crop area is a square, and I can't stretch just 1 direction (just horizontal or just vertical). Anyone know why this is happening, or if there's a way around it?

    Edit: I hope I worded that right so it's not confusing.

    Use Wallpaper Set and Save from the Market. Also Wallpapyrus is an option.

    Wallpaper size should be 960hx1080w

    Is there any way to have it take a different sized wallpaper? I only use 1 screen for my home screen (i.e. no swiping left/right) so it's kind of like I'm losing most of the photo for the background. BTW I use LauncherPro if that makes any difference.

    Using the aps I recommended, you can use any size.

    I tried Wallpaper Set & Save, and it wasn't any better than the normal way to put on a wallpaper.

    I'd like to be able to have something more like 830h x 600w if that's possible, since I pretty much always have my phone held up portrait-style (as opposed to landscape).

    You cannot change resolution of the screen. If you use the resolution I posted earlier, you will get what you need.

    That resolution seems really weird for people like me who only use 1 home page screen (as opposed to the default 5).

    Anyways, I went & got Wallpapyrus and it's fantastic. Pretty much exactly what I wanted, plus the nice option of double-tap to change wallpapers on the fly from a pre-set folder. The only thing I wish it had was an option to turn on/off randomization when in that wallpaper change mode (so I don't occasionally get the same one twice in a row etc). Thanks a bunch Szadzik. :D

    Wallpaper Wizardrii is another great app for scrolling or non-scrolling wallpaper. Free and paid versions. I use free. Works great.

    aawwww man, it doesn't download anymore! Arrggh. Trying to find a resolution for this wallpaper sizing problem for my Samsung Epic is so annoying. I've tried, Wallpaper Wizardrii...doesn't work. Wallpaper Size to Size, doesn't work. I was really hoping I could get this some how! Wallpaper Auto Resize also doesn't work. So any other suggestions? Thanks!

    How do you use the APK file once downloaded to PC?
