    Making a pic wallpaper...

    Advertisement



    What the heck do I have to do after I take a pic to make it full screen wallpaper? Right now, it only fills up about 3/4 of the screen.

    Well what i do is zoom in one up and center it using the ball and just hit menu and click set as Home screen it saves it exactly how you see it so the more you zoom the same it will when you set it.

    Re: Making a pic wallpaper...

    If I take a picture, any size, then set it as wallpaper, it only covers about 3/4 of the screen, no matter how close I zoom in. The top portion of the screen still has the "sky w/clouds" as background.

    The picture sizes I have are 1600x1200, 1024x768 and 640x480. Any other suggestions?

    I just took a pic in the smallest setting and still, after set as home screen, only covers a portion of the screen.

    You'll need to have a photo editing program on your PC and bring the pics into that and size them to 320x240 in order to get them to fit correctly.
    Try Gimp:

    I personally use Photoshop but the learning curve is a little steep.

    I bet its your theme. You are probably using on with a banner that doesn't allow a full screen image. Try a different theme and seen if the pic fills the whole screen.

    I agree with DCookSta cause it works like a charm for me with any picture I want no matter the pic size. I just do the zoom function and center it and I am good to go.
    The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, some1 said 2 thmslvs "U knw, I really want 2 set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close engh to get the job done".

    Yeah if the sizing still doesn't make it work, it is definitely your theme. Try switching themes.

    Got another question; after I "hide" something, where do I go to retrieve it and put it back on the main screen?
