Setting your own wallpaper sucks! - Help me!

I like the ability to use any image from any website and setting it as my wallpaper on my Bold.... but it's not the dimensions of the Bold's screen.


I want to be able to "strecth to fit" or "fill screen" the image I want on my Blackberry Bold...


How do I do that?   and if there's no other way, then I have to edit the picture on my laptop... if so, what is the dimension?
