Hey everyone, when I view images in the gallery and chose set as, I get two wallpaper options. One lets me chose how much of the image to crop and the other will not. However, no matter what I choose, the wallpaper always sets one way-- zoomed into the image so usually the image is cut off. Is there a way to zoom out and set the image or at least if I am choosing the area to set as the wallpaper, it actually sets what is cropped and not a zoomed in shot??

Thanks!

When you pick the area to crop, by default it going to zoom in to cover the screen as a scrolling wallpaper.

If you resize an image using (just an example, and by no means am I endorsing M$) Paint, to a 960X800 then send it to your email and open it, it will work really good and have the whole pic in it. High Res works best. the Evo SCREEN is 960X800.

Just to be technically accurate, the physical screen on the EVO is 480x800 pixels, but because it scrolls the wallpaper between screens it uses a 960x800 size wallpaper.

Well yes, but I assumed he or she wanted a scrolling wallpaper... It's actually 478.8 X 799.7, but who wants to be technical? I'm kidding about the last numbers...:D

Nice. at first I thought those missing tenths were because of the launcher or screen borders. You had me for a split second.
