DROID Wallpaper Maker??? I can't Find Any!

I've looked everywhere and cannot find any kind of Wallpaper Maker for a DROID. For me it doesn't have to be installed on my DROID since I think would be far better creating, editing, and tweaking for my Asus W90Vp-X2.

What I mean by that is I believe it would be better to make/edit backgrounds and icons on a notebook for example. Why a notebook, simple, they're what the general public is buying right now. They've been outselling desktops for what - 6 months to a year now.

Anyway, I think I would love to be able to make custom wallpaper/backgrounds or even themes if the prefect application was out there. Once made we'd simply have to transfer the finished project to the DROID itself needing very very little tweaking if any at all.

I apologize if this is off topic or even a repeated one - I searched the entire form and Market and haven't seen this subject even discussed which is why I posted it to this Forum Topic.

You can make any image a wallpaper, all you need to do is on the home screen, select menu>wallpaper>pictures and select a picture. If the image is set to the correct size and proportion (I'm not sure exactly what it is), you can expand the crop box all the way to the edges so it doesn't crop it at all, and set it as the wallpaper.

As for the new animated wallpapers on 2.1, the APK just came out, so there might be something for making animated wallpapers in there, I'm not really sure. But it might be worth a look.

I jack backgrounds from any website that looks good, If they are the type you have to tile, I install it as a background on my 17' Desktop Docked Notebook, take a screenshot (I only have about 8 icons over to the side) then crop that, with any number of photo programs, to fit the Phone. A square works best. Photos are harder to mess with but you can usually play with them enough to make them work. I snatched a game photo off of the Stars Web page that showed my daughters in the stands, cropped it and viola! a background.
