Ok so I create images the correct size but when I set them as a wallpaper it makes them bigger then the screen and it cuts off some of the picture. How can I fix this?

remember u got three screens to pan ur pic across so if u want the main part of the image to fit the the main home screen then u have to leave room on both sides. thats why the click with 5 is just crazy lame

Yeah it's definitely got room. But what I'm saying is when I go to wallpapers and click the picture, it brings up that little cropping option, I select the whole picture and click ok. It then loads to the wallpaper but it's way too big.

not sure, but just a thought. I've been doing mine at 200 dpi. if you are using default screen resolution you are around 72. perhaps try tweaking your resolution?

Yes, I'm having the same issue. I'd love to have my picture as the background but when I select it, its blown up and fuzzy. What exactly were they thinking when they tested this during production?

Fun22.. they were thinking "If we make it really big and fuzzy.. they'll get tired of trying and go buy backgrounds from us making us even more rich!!"

i'm having the same problem. i made my custom background to the size specified in the wallpaper thread and when i put it on my phone and select it for the bg, it forces me to crop it. not sure why since it's the resolution it's supposed to be.

perhaps there is a trick to it that i'm missing ..?

size vs resolution

Size is the dimensions of your pic.
Resolution is the tightness of the pixels...
Dpi= dots per inch. Think about 854 pixels.
At 72 dpi you are looking at a footlong image.
At 200 dpi you are just over 4 inches.
Sounds like an important detail to me.

so you're saying the images should be more like print quality rather than web quality? that seems silly since it's a web phone not a print phone.

read the specs on the phone...

Before you call me silly you should try it.
The pixels in the screen are more densly packed.
This is why the screen is so impressive compared to others.
Don't you wonder how all that web page fits on this tiny screen?

ive been playing in photoshop with this and nothing is helping. im even changed it to 200ppi i make the canvas smaller and everything and it still wont change the fact that i have to crop. i was close with the actual "image cavas size" being bigger with the image only in the middle smaller taking up only 1/3 of tha canvas. this stinks on ice. and i cant even find the wallpapers, the actual ones, in order to pull them off to get exif data

The Crop box

You do realize that the crop box is scaleable?
