    New member so please be gentle. :)

    I have read numerous posts on several forums about how to get
    wallpaper to fit an Android device without cropping. I still
    have not had success.

    I understand that stock Android crops to make images fit. But if
    I am using an image with the same resolution as my device, why would
    it need to crop at all? I want the whole image to be my wallpaper. Both of
    my devices run Jellybean.

    Samsung Galaxy S3 resolution is 720 x 1280.
    Asus Transformer Infinity is 1920 x 1200.

    But if I use an image the same size it still crops it so only a small
    portion of the image is visible. And this is for a non-scrolling
    wallpaper just on the home screen.

    I tried Quickpic and it allowed me to select more of the image (a larger
    square) but it still cut off the sides. Then when I applied it, the top
    and bottom were cut off too on the home screen.

    I was going to try PicSpeed but recent reviews of the last update say its
    crop feature is no longer working for full images.

    So how can I get a 720 x 1280 on my S3 or a 1920 x 1200 on my Infinity
    without losing large chunks of the image?

    Thanks for any help.

    You don't have to crop it though.. When you press on set as wallpaper a blue frame will show up and than you can resize that frame to put it around what you want.. If that didn't work.. Try Nova Launcher.. I haven't used touchwiz for awhile so I don't know how to do that on it ..

    Note : all what I said is for your galaxy s3

    Using both stock and Nova Launcher on the S3 it still will not grab the whole image. You can only expand the blue frame so far and it never gets the whole picture. Even if I am using the correct image size of 720 x 1280.
