How to make wallpapers optimized for Android

Sometimes you snap a photo or find an image on the web that you would love to display on your Android device, but it doesn’t fit quite right, it’s gigantic, or you just can’t get the right parts of the image to show on the center home screen...

Same here but I bet the How To guide on that would be significantly larger.

Good article but unless I misunderstanding forget all this work and just go for an app like this:https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.shirobakama.wallpaper&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDEsImNvbS5zaGlyb2Jha2FtYS53YWxscGFwZXIiXQ.. this should be just fine.

Phone Arena this is way too confusing and has too many steps. @PhoneMan09 your method is super easy and you can do it all from your phone.

Why doesn't that RAZR MAXX have ICS? OH Wait, that's right! Despite the umphteen articles about it coming, Verizon still hasn't pushed the OTA update yet!

Seriously though, come on already. I shouldn't have to root my phone to get access to an OS that was used as a major selling point for the device MONTHS AGO.

it's not hard at all to flash a leak, if you had just taken an hour or two of your time almost two months ago you would have had ICS this whole time. so either flash a damn leak or shut up and wait like you chose to do.

If you want to troll about this phone, by all means do it on an article about the update itself, not how to optimize a freaking wallpaper.

Nice article, Paint Shop Pro ftw I still love that program. The only sad thing is the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch doesn't support scrolling wallpapers anymore.

It doesn't? Wow. I've only been using the ICS Phase Beam live wallpaper on my E4GT lately, so I wouldn't know lol.
