Am I doing something wrong?07-01-2010 10:22 PM
- nope it's pathetic how HTC has this setup.
It actually crops and zooms to that part of the image to create space so when you scroll you will notice your image changes position.
I can't believe I am saying this, but this is something so basic even BB can do it.07-01-2010 10:26 PM

- I am able to move the green box to the upper left corner of the image then drag the lower right corner of the green box to stretch it out and cover the entire image. Dunno why you can't. Hmmm...07-01-2010 11:04 PM

- mmm... Maybe it has to do with the aspect ratio of the original image? I always resize and crop my wallpapers in Photoshop before transferring them to the phone. The exact dimensions are 960x800. Even when I do that I still get the green box in the middle cropping out almost half the picture until I adjust it. Seems a bit stupid to me. I guess it's one of those features that still needs some refinement. Perhaps Froyo?07-02-2010 11:33 AM

- thats because the image you are using is probably 3 times that of the wallpaper demensions. the arena you select is the ENTIRE image and not just that you see on the homescreen. If you connect your computer, take the pic off and resize it to 960x800 and put it back on you will see that the green box spreads perfectly over the image getting all of it.07-02-2010 01:41 PM

- I'm certainly no expert... but you may try creating a layer in Photoshop, any semi transparent color you like, to the dimensions you need then position it over the background image of your wallpaper where you want, then go to you wallpaper layer and crop it to match your transparent guide. Toss your guide/mask before saving and transferring. You should be very close to the dimension you need.
I can't find a wallpaper I like so I think I'm going to be making my own soon. Let us know if this works for you.

- Put your thumb directly on one edge of the green box. Not inside the box, not outside the box, but directly on one of the green lines. Grey arrow boxes will appear when you do this. Now drag that line away from the center of the image toward the corresponding outer edge of the image. That will be full size.07-04-2010 02:33 PM
- Thank you all for the help and suggestions. I figured out why photoshop was resizing the image automatically.
When I was resizing it, there is a checkbox towards the bottom - constrain proportions. Once unchecked I resized the image to 960x800 and transferred it to my phone and it worked perfectly.07-04-2010 02:37 PM
On the image size menu, uncheck constrain proportions. This will stretch the image when you resize it so the proportions change. It'll make most things look funny.
Or, leave constrain proportions checked, and resize to 960 wide, and let the height fall where it may. Then crop that image to 800 high x 960 wide. This will leave the proportions correct, but obviously remove some of the image.
Edit: I see you figured it out already.07-04-2010 05:16 PM
