    Default IOS 7 and too big of a screen image

    Just did the update to IOS 7, I did browse before I ask this. My background screen image is too big. I tried to save it in a smaller resolution, but when I select it from my library, it tells me to resize it and select, but it still fills up the whole screen. I cannot have it the way I want it , I-E in the middle of the screen, as I had it in IOS 6. Short of going back to it, can Anyone help?
    Thanks

    Turn off the parallax effect. (Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion > [ON] )

    The parallax effect may work but it depends how large the image is.

    My shortcut was to just take a screenshot of the picture while in the camera roll and use that for the wallpaper. And turning off the parallax effect centers that even better for the wallpaper.

    I've been having the same problem hbutin. It's not enough for me to downgrade or even to think about that though. And thanks Heisenberg for the screen shot idea. It was better.

    I filed a bug report about this in beta 4 and it's still an issue.

    Seems like a rash action over a wallpaper. There are other reasons, I presume?

    So did I. And I can't understand why some people find this as a "feature."

    I filed a report as well. I like the parallax effect, but not at the expense of the ability to resize images...

    I'm not sure if this is the same problem, but when I go to change my screen saver, it lets me choose the picture then when it says to "move and scale" the picture is actually very large and you can't move or scale it down. So now it does not look the same on the lock or home screen.

    That’s pretty much it.

    Turn off the parallax effect. (Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion > [ON] )
    Set your wallpaper the way your want it.
    Turn the parallax effect back on (Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion > [OFF] )

    Some report that turning the parallax effect on after setting wallpaper resets the wallpaper. YMMV

    Another option is to take a screenshot of the picture while in the camera roll and use that for the wallpaper. Turning off the parallax effect centers that even better for the wallpaper.

    Would anyone be interested in an app that allows you to choose or take a picture and it places it inside a prebuilt larger image so when it is set as wallpaper it is effectively not zoomed in?

    Would it be reasonable to charge .99 for the app? I'm indie and have to feed the kiddos. But if the cost blocked out too many people that would otherwise use it I would rather go free.

    I just spent a few minutes prototyping it and I believe I could make it. Just judging interest before completing.

    Cheers.

    I have made an app to give you the control over the wallpaper and some new ios7 customization along with it. I am testing and need to have icons made.
