    Where are wallpapers stored, so I can add wallpapers to my phone?
    I had a background in a folder called Backgrounds, from the app - but I could not apply it as my wallpaper - I think it needs to be in the wallpapers section or whatever but I cant find that folder to put it in there...

    Can't you just put them in your picture folder and go to the pic from there and long press and set as wallpaper? Or if you download them from the browser on your phone just go to the download folder and do the same.

    System Wallpapers are stored within the launcher.apk (or whatever it's called on the X) unaccessible without Root Access and some basic Android know how, the best thing to do is to put them in a folder on your SD card named dcim and then pull them fro the gallery

    When I long press a photo in my gallery along the bottom I get a few options share/delete/more inside of "more" there is a "set as" option this also works

    I am on an Original Droid, but it cannot be that different

    I've been trying to set a new wall paper and for what ever reason after it asks me to crop the photo and I hit ok when I go back to the home screen to see it, the picture is zoomed in and its all distorted. I'm wondering if there is any way to preserve the original image?

    You have to widen the crop box as far as it will go. Which is the actual width of the screen. That's as big as you can go. If that's not good enough you'll have to resize the original pic.

    It seems that 1440 x 1280 is the correct ratio, but there is a whole discussion over on AC about this question. Some of the posters have offered suggestions for wallpaper apps that may offer you a bit more choice. You get the demintions in post 13 and start seeing suggestions around post 21. Here is the link.
