    Pictures as Backgrounds

    Advertisement



    My daughter sent me a pictue of herself in her holiday outfit (she sent it from a Razr). The picture is beautiful and I want it as my background on my home screen. However, when I go to use it, the top of the picture is cut off. It seems that the picture doesn't apply to the whole screen. Is there something I can do about that? I will resize the picture, but I really want the whole screen to have the image, not just the middle of the screen.

    What are the dimensions of the picture? You might have to resize with a resizing program for the Curve dimensions.

    How do I determine the dimensions? All it says in the properties is the file size (around 62 kb).

    the top bar on the phone cannot be changed. The bar itself has all your levels and stuff and nothing can cover it.

    Do you have the original email on your PC still? If not, email the image to yourself, check the dimensions on your computer, windows explorer will tell you the size. Then edit it in Paint or Photoshop and the dimensions should be 320x240 for your BB.

    Re: Pictures as Backgrounds

    you will also need to be mindful of the theme u are using... i.e., the AT&T standard theme has that open space at the top and you can't change that...

    Change your them after resizing your pic or after using a wallpaper maker as others have advised... this should get it done for you... if not, send me the pic via PM and I'll quickly do it for ya...

    Good luck

    Not exactly true here... changing the theme will help him here...

    Yeah. I am now using the "Dimensions Today" theme that came with the bb and her picture is working there nicely.
