    I just got a Droid X and it has the 2.2 OS. I downloaded the Wallpaper Set and Save app but I have no idea on how to use it. I have tried to resize the wallpaper I put on the phone but it always make it too big and blurry. If anyone could tell me where I can get help on how to use it I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks

    I had that problem and just resized it on my PC with my fav photo editing software to make it smaller...then used dropbox (an app that eliminates the need to hook the phone to the PC...but can of course do it that way also...but I'm sure there are easier ways...so this is a keep in your back pocket answer and hopefully someone knows an easier way.

    Another suggestion for getting something to the phone without needing to attach the phone is Awesome Drop.

    I'm not familiar with the Wallpaper Set and Save app but the stock wallpaper selection process provides you with a resizable crop box. If you were using the stock crop box I'd say that it sounds like you just need to resize the crop box (by dragging one edge of the box).

    Problem solved

    I solved my problem. I found out that the wallpaper size on the Droid X is 960 x 854 Pixels while the actual viewing size that shows up on the screen is 480 x 854. When you scroll the wallpaper (background) the other ends show up.
    I found the information here: Motorola Droid-X Wallpaper: Dimensions and Guide | Matters of Grey

    I appreciate everyones help.
