I've discovered that nay non Default (25 images) that there is a zoom applied to these images when used as wallpaper.
I have been planning a few wallpaper images for download for the PB forum members but until this issue is resolved I'll hold off posting on my website.
Please take a look at this image the artwork is created 1024 x 600 and uploaded to the PB. When viewing the image it looks perfect but selecting it as a wall paper it gets zoom by about 60%..however er if I select a default PB images a wallpaper it's fine.
I've tried PNG and JPG and any artwork I create and set to wallpaper it gets zoomed.
This is definitely a OS bug!
Please review the attached image as you can see the original artwork and screen grab clearly shows the problem with imported images

I created my wallpaper as 1024x1024 instead of 1024x600 and then instead of zooming, it just centers it. I think it expects to have 1024 pixels in both orientations for when you rotate the tablet.

it looks like the PB OS is centering all images and applies the ratio depending on teh rotation....but that still does not explain why a 1024 x 600 image does not fit the defalut landscape mode as per my above iamge ....technically it shoudl fit perfect and be cropped when rotated, but itès not so
I did try a 1024 x 1024 iamge but hat is certainly a poor fix for something that is clearly an OS bug

I agree, it's not a fix. But it's a good enough work around for now. I was able to crop a photo so that the end result was what I wanted as a background without any zooming. This is one of many bugs I haven't bothered reporting to RIM yet because I think there are much more important ones for them to deal with right now. Of course, they'll probably fix this one first.

I tried both 72pdi and 96 dpi
I am unable to downlaod the default PB image those images are stored in the OS root directory of the system and in another thread I started we cannot delete those default images...which to me is silly, every byte counts on low volume storage devices.
wish RIM which chime in here..
