    It only looks funny on the home screen.. my background is fine and it looks like there is a dirty film in between the screen and my picture preventing my home screen from looking normal.

    Can you take a picture/screenshot? It might be a homescreen overlay, or a widget or something. Which launcher are you using (or which phone)?

    Using atom launcher.. used it on my old phone and this one with no issues before. Whenever I close all my windows there is always this app widget tab open that won't go away as well not sure why. My screen is completely normal except on the home screen. It just looks like I've added a filter to the home screen called "faded/sandy".

    (Wouldn't let me upload a screenshot)

    Thanks

    Using an LG G4
    There maybe the photo will show now. The picture would normally be quite vibrant in colour.

    Which phone do you have? Some phones might have a fade/blur setting for wallpapers from the Gallery. It could also be a setting within Atom Launcher's settings, but you've probably already looked there.

    Probably the answer is yes, but if you go back to the stock launcher and set the same image as your wallpaper, does it show correctly or does it have the fade as well?

    I was hoping to help by testing Atom Launcher myself, but it's apparently no longer available on the Play Store.

    Not sure why I didn't already think of that. But ya everything goes back to normal in the stock launcher. Guess atom launcher decided to go all funky. Thanks for the help

    Definitely either an option from Atom or, for some reason, a permanent overlay. Does Atom have any customization options like background opacity or something?
