    Same question here. And to expand on it - how do I place a picture so it's the background for only my home screen, rather than the picture covering all three screens? I'd like a different photo for each of the three screens if I can.

    Can't...All 3 screens are your Home screen or 5 screens in 2.1 or with Home apps....

    Hmmm. Thought I had seen here screenshots with multiple photos. Guess I was mistaken! Thanks for clearing that up.

    I'm having the same issue. Even using 1600x1200 pictures cropped as far as the orange box will stretch seem pixelated.

    Wide image

    What I've found is that IF the image is wide enough, and unique I get the benefit of having the screen to the left of home as uniquely looking at the leftmost portion of my image and same for home and right. Follow me ?

    Ends up being a neat effect. I like it.

    I understand that 2.1 is rumored to have the tile tool at the bottom to aid the user with knowing what home page they are on. I like what I've got going with this effect. The image is of earth and space and if I'm on the leftmost screen I can immediately tell as the image is different from that of the home view or the right screen.


    peace,

I don't want to crop the photo, but would rather it be my background just the way it is, rather than making it extremely large and zoomed in. Please help!

    Sorry guys I've been busy for a while... but a couple things to hopefully clear this up

    1) Make sure that when you are setting the picture as your wallpaper you are stretching the orange box around the pic all the way out... if you don't the wallpaper will center on a smaller portion of the picture making it look all zoomed in and pixelated

    2) If you are making your own pictures.... having the correct size is only half of making a good picture. You have to also make sure that you have a good resolution. The more pixels per inch you have the sharper the image will be. I try to make mine at least 150 ppi. By default Photoshop sets it at 72 ppi... so change that and see if it helps.

    I hope that this helped clear up some of the questions on here. If not you can always pm me or email me @ meh8036@gmail
