    Surprisingly, square photos are best for use on Android phones
    This is because your wallpaper is stretched out over several homescreens, and you only see a part of your wallpaper on each screen.

    Because of this, if you have a vertical picture like yours, you will be asked to crop it into a square type shape. You can change the size of the crop box when you set it as your wallpaper.

    Oh, and maybe a "NSFW" disclaimer would've been nice for the pic. :icon_eek:

    Aspect ratio is all wrong. You need to crop (not resize) the image. You'll have to decide what parts of the photo you're willing to lose. Any image editing app on your PC can easily crop the image.

    Best you can do to retain the entire image (no cropping) is to expand the sides. You don't need another person to do this. Just about any image editing app on your PC can do this. Try Irfanview if you don't have anything.

    Not exactly square. I don't recall the exact ratio of dimensions for my device but it's a rectangle.
