using entire wallpaper instead of cropping
is there a way, when selecting a wallpaper, to select the entire image instead of just a portion of it? cause when i search for images, i prefer to get one with the same resolution as the my epic's screen, but the phone doesnt allow you to select the entire image, and i kinda dont like how when you scroll the pages, the image moves with it

Because the wallpapers run across multiple screens its not always the same size as the phones screen resolution. For example the DroidX screen resolution is 480x854 but the wallpaper size is 960x854.
480x800 is the Epics resolution size but you need a wallpaper size of 960x800.
As for the image moving you can set it to stay still. I forget how on the stock launcher because I use Launcher Pro but it should say something like Disable wallpaper scrolling.
Find wallpapers 960x800 from your phones browser... long press over the image... set as wallpaper. I have some Android wallpapers if your interested. The link is in my signature.

I really don't like scrolling walpaper myself and have always just edited my backgrounds in photoshop so that the '480*800 piece' that always shows is what I want to show... It can be tedious at first but once you have a template saved you can edit it to any image you wish...
Try this if you wish to just resize on the phone and make things simple:
which I found in this forum http://forum.androidcentral.com/andr...ize-app-2.html

all you have to do is download the "wallpaper set and save" app. just do that and it's perfect! trust me, this thing is amazing. You dont have to worry about resolutions or anything like that. It'll take care of it all.

seems like wallpaper wizardrii is the app i want but i dont exactly like they way you choose your image. it doesnt let you see all your different galleries at once. it opens a gallery and you scroll through them. would be easier if it let you choose the gallery you would like to go into
