Good news. I found that google + will do the trick. Just have the photo uploaded to picasa and then tell google + to make it the wallpaper and it will scroll if the image is in widescreen format.

I tried Zedge also. It worked but it was because they happened to have the exact same pic that I wanted to use in their gallery.

What ROM did you flash and what launcher are you using. I want to say that I did see that same thing on one of the ICS ROMs. Don't remember offhand which one though.

I use one click and apex launcher. Everything works great. But i think apex will work with any rom.

Yeah, it looks like he switched launchers and it started working correctly for him. I think it actually may be a launcher/gallery combo as well. I wish I could remember what I was trying when I saw that it wasn't doing the widescreen correctly.

I am on the leaked ICS ROM. I found it is the touchwiz launcher gallery combo that has the issue. I now use Google+ to set a image I want to use as widescreen.

Seriously. Use it for everything. Gallery is broken.

I'm on Sky ICS UCLD2 base and I can set any 960X800 image as a scrolling widescreen wallpaper just like in GB.
