[THE] [Updated 22-01-2010] ₪₪₪ HDWall Wallpaper CAB collection ₪₪₪ [RTFP!!]
NB: [22-Jan-2010] If you would like to request a cab file for your chosen wallpaper, you will find most will be happy to have a go for you. However, when doing so, can you please give specifics of the ROM you are using, i.e WM6.1/6.5/6.5.3, Sense/Manila/TF3D 2/2.1/2.5 and whether of not your version of Sense/Manila/TF3D is CFC compressed (if using a Custom ROM, the Rom Cooker's thread should tell you all of this information). This will greatly help the person who decides to do it for you, otherwise it's a complete shot in the dark, and if you are using anything other than the stock rom, it will most probably not work as they will normally use the default profile (TouchFLO v2.1 - No Compression - All Tabs). Actually, if you know all this info, there's no reason why you can't successfully have a go yourself, as I would always urge you to do. There's nothing like being able to do it yourself!
Here's an idea...changing the wallpaper on our TP2s seems a bit more difficult than in the past. The usual "background 4 all pages" methods that are about seem to cause problems for some (actually most, I think). I personally get a massive lag in screen rotation and other graphical gitches that I can't live with.
The answer is HDWall

for this great piece of software)
OK, so it's time consuming and it involves a CAB installation and soft reset (actually, if you skip the restart after CAB installation, just restarting TF3D from Settings>>Personal>>Today>>Items does the trick), but what you end up with is a flawless wallpaper, higher in resolution than the standard methods, same background on all tabs, and absolutely no glitches or lags in rotation that I have noticed.
So the idea is, post your CABs and screenshots and share with the community your creations, save people the time and effort and make changing your wallpaper to suit your mood easy again!

***A quick tip for new users of HDWall...Before you start creating your wallpaper, from the config menu select the profile that matches you ROM's WM6.x / WM6.5.x... and Manila/Sense version, otherwise it will not work. Read the instructions on maranell0's post
for full details of how it's done! If at first you don't succeed, keep trying and eventually it will seem easy!***
One more thing. I don't personally get this problem, but if the picture doesn't load on the home tab, but all the other tabs are ok, you will need to clear the following 3 values in the registry (after the first install):
clear the value of
3: HomeBackgroundPath <<<thanks to real187 for this info
