Default Nova launcher scrolling wallpaper without zooming

Anyone found the correct wallpaper size so when using it with Nova launcher doesn't get zoomed if you choose scrolling?

Its really annoying.

Thanks

I am not sure of the correct size, but I use Multipicture Live Wallpaper if you like the idea of having more than one wallpaper. I look for wallpaper at our resolution (I am guessing 16:10)

It's "zooming" because the image must work in both landscape and portrait mode. It will always do that no matter how big the image is. Make sure the image chooser you use shows both the portrait and landscape boxes simultaneously if you want an accurate idea of what it will look like once chosen.

I use 'Simple Image Wallpaper'. You can choose the ENTIRE image for landscape & choose how you want the cropped one to appear for portait (or vice versa). It is NOT a live wallpaper, that is just how it gets around the limitations listed by the Playah above.

Once installed, you pick 'live wallpaper' from the system wallpaper options, THEN 'Simple Image Wallpaper'. Pick your image(s) in settings.

Hope that helps!

I am using Nova Launcher on Note 2 and the screen resolution is 720x1280
multiplied width by 2 so 1440x1280 should be perfect fit.

Try multiplying the height or the width by 2 and see if it fits perfectly

hope I helped
