    I have this picture that I would like to make my wallpaper. When I set it to wallpaper it spreads it across the front six screens and I can only see part of the picture on each screen. What can I do to make it show the whole picture on each of the screens? Here is the picture.

    I'm almost positive you have to run a different launcher. I know adw's
    Launcher lets you isolate the wallpaper so it doesn't scroll with the panes. Launcher pro probably has the same setting.

    I checked though the display setting and it doesn't look like you can set it unless you run a launcher.

    Basically, you just mount your phone via USB and place the images on the sdcard. Ideally you would want to create a Media\Wallpaper folder or something to put them in to stay organized.

    Once the images are on your phone, you unmount, long press on any open area of your screen and select set wallpaper (or hit Menu > Wallpaper). Then choose gallery and you should see whatever folders you dumped them into. It will scan the entire sdcard so their location really doesn't matter, it's more of an organization thing as I said.

    You could also just text them to your phone, or send them to gmail and download directly through your phone without having to mount it.

    How is the above any different than what I have done already. I have the picture on my wallpaper it is just that it gets stretched across all 6 of the front screens on my phone. So when I am on the main screen I only see the mid section of the picture. When I do other wallpapers I don't get that.

    You just need picture that has the bike smaller and more centered. The dx will still move the panes unless you use a launcher that stops it.

    OP, download and install MultiPicture Live Wallpaper...it will allow you to set a wallpaper for each individual screen, not stretch across all of them.

    You could also "stitch" together 7 different pictures that are properly sized to fit a single screen. Then save that image and apply it as your wall paper. I haven't tried this, but it should feasibly work.

    This is the best way to do what you're trying to do! You can even have a different pic on each screen. Use this with Launcher Pro and you will be happy.

    No you don't need LP, and yes I'm touting it. What the OP is trying to do involves the limitations of the original Droid launcher. Just saying that LP works well with Multipicture Live Wallpaper.

    Is there a way to use a wallpaper without having it stretch all across the screen and making it look retarded?
