Wallpaper Won't Automatically fit to Landscape orientation

i am sure this used to work once upon a time, but my wallpaper only fits-to-screen in portrait orientation only.  when i rotate to landscape, it still stays in portait mode with black bars on the edges instead of filling the screen like in the good ol' days.  umm how did this happen?  what's the fix?  thanks.

Re: Wallpaper Won't Automatically fit to Landscape orientation

ok folks, maybe someone can help me with a sanity check.  have your phone out, look at it normally/vertical, now take it and rotate it to landscape and tell me if the wallpaper automatically fills the screen.  thanks.

Re: Wallpaper Won't Automatically fit to Landscape orientation

mine resizes the photo just fine, issue might be that your photo does not have enough pixels and you get a black border where there is nothing.

 

can you open the picture on a PC and see what size the picture is in pixels are?

Its the built-in wallpapers that have the little lock in the corner. I am not using my own photos.
