    Loving the panoramic backgrounds on iOS7. I've been testing a few and this is my favorite for the moment:

    Definitely a favorite feature. I wish there were a way to reset it though. Sometimes you're stuck way over to the left, or way over to the right.

    It's one of those things that gets old really quick (like being able to set a new theme for your home screen) so enjoy the feeling of awe and wonder while it lasts.

    In a couple of months it'll just be a 'meh'. Heck, when I switched from Android to an iPhone I didn't even realize it didn't have panoramic backgrounds for a long time. I guess I got so used and indifferent to it I didn't really notice it was missing on an iPhone.

    I did... it works, but its not tall/full screen.

    Also, suddenly lost the ability to do panoramic backgrounds... had to restart the phone to make it work again.

    Its all good now.

    Yea I'm sure it's just the newness for iOS users, but its a welcome addition. I'm sure I'll be switching between panoramic backgrounds, but I'm almost sure I will keep it since it seems it doesn't run down battery. I only wish you could slow down the scrolling . Nice improvement for iOS.

    Make sure you add the background from settings and not photos. Scroll down and you'll see a panorama folder. Select the pic from there not camera roll or some other folder.

    How did you guys add photos to the panoramic album? I am under the assumption that the only way it works is if it is one of the photos in the panoramic album. I tried saving one I found online but it would only show up in my regular album.

    I presume that the resolution of the pic tells iOS that its a panorama. Try saving one of the above pics and let us know if that works.

    Saved a bunch, like 20, and and most of them went into panorama but only 3 of them were perfect fit. Most though only take up half or 80% of the screen with the rest being black and more buggy than the ones that fit or are taken with the phone.

    Remember the screen resolution of the iPhone is 1136x640, so make sure the height of the panorama is at least 1136. You can resize the photos and it would fit without the black at the top and bottom of the photo.

    If you're doing google searches, just use search setting to indicate large size images.

    Only two of those pictures showed up without the huge black border, the 958x311 ones. So I did a google search with the exact dimensions and found one that was 958x3111 but it showed up on my phone with huge black borders. So now I wonder if this is perhaps a bug/glitch?

    Also worth noting is that the pictures that fit perfectly work way better than ones with the black.

    Has anyone else noticed if using the panoramic wallpaper drains your battery faster?

    I just realized the site changes the pic size. So open in a new tab to get the full resolution.

    The ones you posted have different dimensions. What are the exact dimensions I should search for on Google Images?
