    I am still having the same difficulties in resizing a photo to use as a wallpaper. I pinch it and it snaps back. I've read countless forums with work arounds. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

    I will PM you a promo code (free) for my app Fix My Wallpaper. Inspired by the iMore forum users I made it last year. I had many copy cats within weeks but my take on it works for me. Anyone else want a code please let me know. Thanks to the iMore forum users! You rock.

    Actually I've never resized a picture. I just use set as wallpaper and the phone does it.
    I know, I'm lazy...

    It forces a minimum size where the wallpaper is your image from the top to the bottom of the phone. So you can't shrink the picture down smaller then that. Many of us want a picture to be in the middle of the phone and not stretch from the very bottom and top of the phone.

    This is by Apple design presumably so you can't have dead space below or above your picture. This coincided with the home button double tap change and the parallax effect.

    Someone may have thought this wouldn't look good so they added this restriction.

    Cheers.

    This is how it looks by default (not as nice)

    It is horse s*%# that apple refuses to fix this bug, in order to force people to buy or download apps to do it for them.... Horse s**+! Makes one want to switch to anything else. Out of principal.

    Nobody is forcing anyone to do anything or buy anything. It's a matter of personal preference versus Apple design.

    Decided to make the app free. Should show up soon at new low, low bargain price. Hopefully iMore fans still find it useful.

    I use "Image Size" for many of my wallpapers. Works good for most images.
