    HELP!! Is there a way to use a Image for Wallpaper and NOT have it stretch thro pages

    For Droid2

    OK this so annoying..

    Is there a way on the Droid 2 to use a photo as your wallpaper and NOT have it be all stretched out through the 7 pages???? (home page being page #4 as your slide through.

    What the heck were they thinking when they thought that was a good idea, and I can't even find a option to not have it do that. There must be an app or something?

    Welcome to the forum and watch the language. This is a family-friendly website. I'd change that before a Mod or SuperMod sees it and dings you for it.

    Have you tried setting your wallpaper from the Gallery and when you pick the picture you select the whole image instead of part of it?

    Have you tried a 3rd party launcher? I don't know how attached you are the to the MotoBlur, but you could try. I'm partial to ADW and a lot of people like LauncherPro -- it's a matter of taste. I'm unsure any other launcher works under FroYo, so if you want to give it a try, try those two.

    Make sure your wallpapers are 960x854 in size or close to that. Or if you don't want the wallpaper to scroll ADW has an option to disable that.

    If you dont want to changes launchers, the easier way to set a single image per screen is to use MultiPicture Live Wallpaper - Android app on AppBrain widget...

    Good catch, BodyBagz.

    ADW Things

    That will get you ADW if you want to go that route.

    Is it actually stretched or are you referring to the way that the home screens pan across the wallpaper?

    What the heck were you thinking that it wasn't a good idea? Seriously, though, there are options presented above to disable it if it really bothers you.
