    I think that's what most people probably aren't doing. Just stretch the red box to the size of the picture.
    I stretch the red box, and it blows it up gigantic.
    If you read my post i tried to explain why. Most images are just too small for the background we have. So it has to stretch them bigger to get them to fit. I hope this helps understand.

    lol...

    where did you get the picture? In the Gallery on this site? or you found it yourself?

    If you found it in the gallery it's already sized just drag the crop square all the way out.

    If you found it on the internet...you have to size it yourself to those proportions with a photo editor.

    You can't change it while it's on the phone. The picture has to be natively 960 x 854 before it goes onto your phone. Our picture section has many that are the correct size. But some pictures will do the same thing on the computer as they did on your phone if you set them to a higher setting then they are already at.

    I got the picture from the "Backgrounds" gallery that you can download in the market.

    Just to let you know that image is about a 509 x 393 image size. That's why it's blowing it up so much. I tried many pictures from the backgrounds app, but not many at all are sized correctly for our phone because the size of our background is so big.
