    Are you taping the orange box and dragging it out to it's full extent?

    Keep something in mind...if the Droid operates like my G1 did when I have it...the wallpaper isn't three separate screens. It's just one. Each swipe to the left or right only pans the picture to the right or left. So you definitely need to make sure your image is the correct size/resolution.

    The Droid's screen is 960x854 so pretty much anything out of that range or very close to it, is going to look like crap.

    not sure about the size, i just did a search for a University of Georgia G and i downloaded several of them and can't get it to work.
    i do tap the orange box and drag the square out as large as i can but it's still blurry, sometimes it's worse than others but i've tried making the orange box small, huge, middle but they are all blurry...

    Describe what you are looking for (color, etc) or show me a link to what you are trying to set as the background and I will turn it into the proper size for you. Like do you just want a UofG black background with the logo on your center screen?

    That's exactly right...a Georgia G with a black background would be perfect or a UGA Helment or anything but the G is really what I'm looking for...
    how would i find the size of the pics? when i search Google i can see the images and download them but i have no idea what size they are.

    Not sure, it's the correct size for the Droid wallpaper. Perhaps someone can say why. I don't think you're picky, it took me like 10 seconds to do.

    I was trying to save it from the forum site instead of opening the link & then saving the picture. once i did that it looks perfect!
    thanks so much for doing that. this site is great...
