    Is there a way you can remove your wallpaper? I am talking about setting your wallpaper to "none" not removing the actual file or changing it.

    Is there a way to set your background to nothing?

    Thanks

    Yes that is what I figured would be the answer. So I guess no way to set it to none so that no image file is being used.

    Thanks

    I would guess that you could edit a picture to the actual dimensions to prevent zooming. Being a noob, I dont know what,those dimensions are or if it would work, but it is a suggestion

    Yea, if you use an image editing program to scale your image to exactly 960 (wide) by 800 (tall), it'll display with no scaling. When you pick it in the wallpaper picker, it'll still have the little box cropped in a bit, but just click and drag a corner of that crop box and you can pull it out to the full size of your image and no scaling will happen.

    If you search the Internet, there's a completely black iphone wallpaper you can download (I think it's a jpeg file?). I'm hoping that uses less system resources.

    All you need is a tiny black image. I've attached a 10x10 pixel (under 1kb) black png file that works fine.

    Faster and easier:

    Open the camera application.
    Turn off the flash.
    Press an opaque piece of soft cloth over the camera lens.
    Take a picture of blackness.
    Tap the picture in the bottom right corner to view the photo you just took.
    Tap "More" (also in the bottom right corner).
    Select "Set as" and choose "Wallpaper".

    Jet black wallpaper not only looks really classy, but I gather that it also saves power. But this is a hack. There should be a "None" or "No Wallpaper" option.

    ok say you had that option, what would be displayed behind your icons? I am guessing a jet black image would be the default

    open the image that you want to set as wallpaper from the gallery app and choose set as - then you get to control the zoom size.

    If it is a picture from the web - long press on it in your browser and then save image - open gallery and look in download folder

    open image you want
    hit menu
    hit more
    set as
    wallpaper
    grab the edge of the orange box and slide in or out

    It will force the right aspect ratio so you might lose an edge, but I zoom way out on all my images and get 90% of what I want in my wallpaper

    hope this helps

    Try this simple tool: Remove Wallpaper (RemoveWallpaper in Google play)

    It actually does not remove the wallpaper, but replaces it with a black picture.
