    I have not experienced my pics becoming blurry after 1x zoom... is this a pic taken with the pearl?

    I think you are always going to get the white borders, because the aspect ratio of a photo taken with the pearl differs from the aspect ratio of the wallpaper.

    Send it to the blackberry wallpaper converter and email it to yourself.

    The picture you use to upload for a background image must 240X260 pixels as this is the resoution of the Pearl. If it is anything less than the picture will be smaller than full screen.

    I think the second choice is the one I used to upload to my Pearl.

    That's a cool idea, but the image came through distorted. It's squished/skinny like watching widescreen movie credits on a standard TV.

    Or the original image size was too far from 240x260 so it got distorted

    Apparently the Camera Pictures are a differnt aspect ratio than the Pearls screen. You'll have to download to an Image Editor on you PC, Crop them to the proper ratio, then upload back to the Pearl.

    Hope this Helps

    I just use photoshop and it comes out perfect. A few steps though.
