    Are there any wallpapers, or any way to get your phone to display a full picture in the center of your screen? Instead of having to swipe side to side for the rest of the wallpaper. It's really annoying cause it zooms in the center and cuts off the rest of the people in the photo.

    Just a thought, but try to add a border to the picture/image you want to use as your wallpaper. Then when you go to size it on your phone you can select the whole image but the portions that will be on the other screen are the border.

    Are you using the correct size image? 960 x 854 is correct.
    Are you stretching the crop box?

    If you don't want the wallpaper to scroll as you swipe you will need a 3rd party app.

    Can you tell me the name of a 3rd party app (preferably free) that will let me do that?

    Launcher Pro has an option to disable wallpaper scrolling.

    Okay so I downloaded Launcherpro and maybe I'm just stupid. But it's not in my apps section.. How do I access that feature on Launcherpro?

    From the home screen after Launcher Pro is installed: Menu > Preferences > Appearance Settings > Check "Disable wallpaper scrolling". If you're unable to load launcherpro download and install "home switcher".

    If there's enough room around the people in the image and if the image is the correct aspect ratio you can also try adjusting the crop box so that everyone's in the middle. As stated above, don't forget that you can resize the crop box. A lot people don't seem to realize this.

    Make sure you're choosing Launcher Pro (I recommend setting it as default) when you hit the home key.

    You can also use wallpapers for the Droid and Droid 2 as well, the screen resolution is the same for all three devices.

    You can use the Zedge app. Search the forums here or over on DXF. Or Google 960x854. Tons of wallpaper choices out there. Just depends on what you are looking for.
