What is the best way to apply wallpapers? Every one I apply stretches it weird.

Doesn't work good for me because I only have 1 home screen.

Shouldn't make a difference. Thr preview shows you what it looks like on one screen before you apply

It does because it only shows part of the wallpaper like I can scroll to the right or left. But since I can't since I only have 1 home screen.

I cannot reproduce this. Every wallpaper I set on a single homescreens configuration applies perfectly on the Google launcher.

However, with one screen you will only get the centre of the wallpaper.


Edit... or is that the point i'm missing? Do you want the entire width of the wallpaper to fit your 1 homescreen? If so what resolution is the wallpaper?

Your wallpaper needs to be the correct size. It has to be 2160x1920, assuming you are using the stock launcher. The single home screen will show the leftmost 1440 pixels of the wallpaper.
