Default Wallpapers

Is anyone else having problems setting wallpapers? I have a 480 x 800 pictures and I set it to not scroll and the cropping works perfectly but the wallpaper doesn't fit the screen and is zoomed in....argh

When you go to set your wallpaper, you should he able to resize it (like a widget)..

Yeah even if you want it static ....., but does depend on the launcher you are using, but standard size for the SGS2 is 960x800 and if you let the phone crop it , it will SUCK

So what does one have to do to get a good static image.
