    I'm looking for an app that can put a picture on a double wide tile, so I can put my school roster on my home screen

    The only one i found that comes close to my needs is Image Tiles, however for some reason even though it allows you to make a wide tile it doesn't let me get the entire picture into the frame (yeah it's kinda strange) I tried downsizing the image but it only got blurrier

    So does anyone know a good app that will allow me to put an entire picture on a wide tile? It would be greatly appreciated :)

    HD Photo Viewer ... it has a double wide tile . Add your picture to the live tile and you should be done

    The app's main purpose is to improve the quality of image viewing (it is known that the default gallery app slightly reduces the quality of images when showing them to u)

    Thanks but this doesn't quite satisfy me because it's not just one big image, it is strangely zoomed in and randomly moving across the picture...

    I looked at many apps... Really disappointing... I can't believe there isn't a single app that lets you pin an hd picture... :'(
