Whenever I go to set a wallpaper, only a portion of it will fit on the screen. How can I go about re-sizing the wallpaper so the whole thing would fit on the screen? So like if I have the disable wallpaper scrolling option checked I'll be able to see the whole wallpaper? Maybe not even the whole wallpaper, but I'd like to be able to resize them so at least more of the wallpaper can be seen.

I'm assuming it will have something to do with using a program on my computer to resize it, but I dont know what program to use, once I find a program how to resize it, or how to get the dimensions correct.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can use Microsoft paint to re-size your wallpaper. Open the desired wallpaper then go to image > stretch and skew. you will need to experiment with the % on Horizontal and Vertical.

I downloaded Wallpaper Set and Save last night, but the wallpaper it created fit worse than my original .jpg's. I noticed when I downloaded it that it said it only works for Android 1.x -- I have a Droid Pro with 2.2.1.

Any suggestions on something that works with the newer OS?

Thanks!

I use Wall Switch and love it. I am able to take my 1900x1200 computer backgrounds and it will automatically adjust the size to make it fit perfectly.

How do I set the wallpaper to NOT scroll with the screen? I downloaded some WP's and also got Wall Switch, but the WP scrolls left/right with the homescreen.
