    Default New to stock Android, need Wallpaper help please lol

    I'm sure this sounds like a real trivial problem but its starting to really bug me.

    I'm loving my Nexus 10, but can't seem to set pictures or any other images to display correctly as my wallpaper.
    I've tried using an app called Wallpaper Wizadrii, which has helped some what,
    but was hoping some forum members would share some helpful hints and tips.

    Thanks in advance for any help given on this topic.

    OK I have no idea why I couldn't do this before? I would just select an image from my gallery, set as wallpaper, but it would not allow me to crop it is well as it has done, doing it using the process above.

    sr2012, thanks for your help, and the quick response to my query, I knew it'd be a simple way lol

    OK still playing up, I set an image to display correctly then if the tab is switched off or rotated (turned auto rotate off as only use landscape) or just screen locked for awhile the image has zoomed in and no longer displayed correctly or as it was.

    So frustrating, just want to set an image, never have this problem on my phone, can set any image I like.

    Any suggestions?

    That's strange. Check the forums for Nexus 10 at a variety of websites and update to 4.2.1 if you haven't already.

    I had a very similar and very annoying problem too. I couldn't figure out how to set the wallpaper correctly using standard means but I ended up downloading this app and it worked perfectly, give it a try hopefully it will work form you too.

    Cheers for the replies guys. I've installed wallpaper wizadrii (free from the play store) and its brilliant, I was running a beta version, which wasn't quite running properly, but this one seems to have solved the problem. I suggest you download it, much easier than the stock android settings.
