    I have been hearing that the DROIDs app market has some apps that can either allow a wallpaper to be made equally un-cropped and stretched on each of its 3 screen/ or have a different wallpaper on each screen.

    Is this true and if yes what app will do this for me?

    I really don't like the way the DROID stretches one image across its 3 screens.

    I'm not sure about what you're asking. BUT I do have another question/observation.... it seemst hat even if the picture has a huge resolution (1500x1500, etc) it still looks like crap on the Droid. However, if the Resolution is spot on it will look 20 times better. In short, it seems like cropping wallpapers screws the quality?

    I've had cropped wallpapers on the Droid, the quality seemed fine. Only time I noticed a difference was when I started using HD wallpapers.

    Does anyone know what size a single screen on the Droid is? I'm using Home++ now, and I set it to use the same image across all screens, and I would like to crop a photo for that specific resolution. Would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    960 x 854 is the Droid screen resolution.

    Are you stretching the crop window?

    Tap on the orange box and drag the arrows...

    A single screen is 480x854 - the fit for the standard 3 screens is 960x854.

    True but there is just one wallpaper for all 3 (or 5,7,9)

    Yes, but with Home++, you can set it to show the same picture (not scrolled) on each screen. Thus, the resolution for that picture would need to be 480x854.

    You can? How so? I must've over looked this!

    Btw, thanks for clarifying the individual screen resolution, since I provided the res. for all 3 screens.

    ^ Indeed. Launcher++, Home++, DxTop, GDE, PandaHome....
    They all give you the option to add more home screens to your Droid.

    ...and FYI... 2.1 update has 5 screens (nothing confirmed however yet)

    Thanks GolfPro...
    As for how to do it, go under Home++ Preferences, choose "Graphics", and then un-check "Wallpaper scroll"

    Lol, yes I am... It seems to depend on the picture size... it's strange. I just crop them in Windows first so they are the exact size now. A bit of a hastle but not a big deal.

    great wallpapers

    i was surfing this morning and ran across so cool pix on Gizmodo. One of those "retrospective" things. In it was a bunch of hi res shots from the Casinini sattellite or the sun, Jupiter, Mars, the moon etc. I grabbed several and use them for wallpaper. AWSOME!!

    I'm using the Saturn now. I did nothing to it but load it on the card and select it in my pix and say make it wall paper. Drug the handles all the way to max and set it. Looks great and covers all three screens I use in Panda.
