    Reducing motion wouldn't help...it has no relevance to the size of the picture itself when applied to the iPad.

    As far as adjusting size on the iPad, you can always zoom in, but shrinking is something you have to do before even syncing it TO the iPad...there are precise dimensions online for every iPad on the market, find yours, and make the picture appropriately sized. It's really not that difficult. The iPad WILL adjust the size down a bit to try and accommodate it, but it's only going to do this to a certain point and then it expects you to actually put some effort into finding the right sized picture anyways.

    Simple question with a link to an easy answer and by the way Sean mentioned sizes of every iPad, If you use the link I gave you, It will give you the correct sized needed.

    Agreed. This has always frustrated me. It wasn't a frustration I had to through on blackberry or android. Hopefully Apple changes their stance on this someday.

    My suggestion would be to provide feedback to Apple:

    If you are up-to-date with iOS then when selecting Wallpaper, you should have the option of turning 'perspective zoom' off.

    O.S. is updated and perspective zoom is a useless feature. I have tried using that with different wallpapers numerous times over the course of owning it. Also found an app that claims to fix this issue. But it costs me a dollar?? Really?

    Most use a square aspect ratio of 1024x1024 resolution for iPad because it can be turned to portrait or landscape. Maybe 2048x2048 for retina.
