    Question Wallpaper size for Milstone?

    I read that 960x854 should be the right resolution. I did with Gimp an image with that size, copied it to the sd card and set it as wallpaper. What a wonderful surprise when the android tried to crop it. So, I guess, 960x854 is not the right resolution. any insight?

    U could try 480 x 854 that's the physical size of your screen.
    I didn't tried it yet, i just own my Milestone for 2 days.

    Does the same on the Droid.

    Tap on the crop box and drag the arrows to the full extent.....

    ouch, did not try that one. Good call. I am a newbie too, only two weeks using the phone. Had a lot of work and did not have time to investigate it. Thatīs way I love this forum. Thanks for the tip. So you confirm that 960x854 is the right resolution? And I have to extended the crop area?

    BTW, is there any way to access to the ones stored in the phone? the ones displayed in the Wallpaper gallery? guess I will have to remove the sd card right?

    Display is listed as 480 x 854 pixels Motorola MILESTONE - Full phone specifications

    But wallpaper should be the same as the Droid since they are basically the same phone...

    Stock wallpapers are not accessible to delete unless you have root from my understanding....

    960x854 makes no sense to me, you could see the 960 as 2 x 480 (which is the size of the screen) but 1440 (3x480) would make more sense to me since you have 3 homescreens by default and the Pic could span all the 3 homescreens. This is all theoretical, so please reply if you try it

    Well, by default Gimp starts new images in 72 dpi, which is more than enough for something like that.

    The Milestone doesn't use three screens when it pans the desktop. It only pans the image left or right by about 80%, so it's closer to 830x720 dimensions, by my experiments.
