    How can I take a picture and use the entire picture for a wallpaper ? I don't want the lil box option, is it a way around that ?

    I have a Droid, not a Droid X, but I believe this might still work (it works for me on the Droid)... worth a shot either way.

    Download Mabilo Wallpapers from the market. Open Mabilo and add a couple of pictures to your favorites. This will create the following directory on your SD Card: /mabilo/favorites . Move your desired image into that "favorites" directory on the SD Card. Then restart Mabilo, go into your Favorites within Mabilo, and you should see your image. Then, from within Mabilo, set it as the wallpaper. Unless your image is a funky resolution, it should utilize the full image for your background... or at least a lot more than that little orange square you get through the gallery.

    I've never tried pseudo-importing an image with those dimensions - maybe mabilo has some max limitations... not that that helps you at the moment. :)

    Way way too big......960(w) x 854(h) is what is needed.

    The only way I've ever done it is with my OLD copy of Photoshop (either 5 or 6, don't remember...). You can just go up to Image and then Resize.
