Re: HTC One album slide show- live wallpapers
I have the HTC Sensation XE (The HTC One's predecessor) and I also use the stock live background slideshow. I had the exact same problem untill I noticed that it didn't crop a picture that was flat (width bigger than length) instead of standing. So I made a new folder called "Live Background" and copied every picture I wanted to use, and edited each and every standing picture to add white space on each side so that my standing picture would become a flat one. For example, a picture that was say 800x600 (hight x width), I had to add at least 100 pixels to each side to make it at least 800x800. I have over a thousand pictures in my Live Background folder, so you can guess how much effort and time this took.
I also noticed that all pictures that were bigger than the maximum pixels (My Sensation has a screen of 975 pixels) were cropped by the program. Therefore I reduced all pictures to a maximum of 975 pixels.
One last tip: My Android Gallery had problems keeping the real pictures and the Live Background pictures apart, sometimes showing those ugly white spaces in the real picture folder. Therefore I renamed every picture in my Live Background to help Android Gallery tell them apart.
Hope that helps!
