    Ok, so I have a wallpaper built. Thing is, it's not correct size for a WP wallpaper (I know because I emailed it to myself and opened it on my phone). How do I change it's size (resolution?) to where it's the correct size to fit my phone?

    The correct size is 480 x 800 J4rrod.

    'Paint' that comes with Windows will allow you to resize it's resolution. :)

    It's very basic but free, and will do the job of your resize.

    Load in your picture / Resize / Pixels / OK

    Paint.NET - Free Software for Digital Photo Editing is what I used to create my entries, and they are pretty bad as$.
    Also, there is GIMP which is a lot more advanced, and is like PhotoShop but with a different interface.

    Example of one of mine:

    Thanks guys.

    I actually created the whole thing in Paint, but when I went to resize I missed where you could uncheck "Maintain aspect ratio."

    Thing is, when I change the ratio from 1124x1040 the entire thing looks terrible. It messed up the entire project.

    Anyway to change resolution while maintaining aspect ratio? I worked 4 hours on this thing on the count of Paint's Fill option not working with the images they gave us :'(

    See what I mean?

    Correct resolution: https://skydrive.live.com/redir.aspx...BjYgZzJSTFBkkc

    Please someone help :(

    Haha, I'll try TheWeeBear.

    One more question: when I attach an image, such as I did when I posted the wallpaper over on the contest thread, the picture doesn't show up/preview on the thread itself like yours does. I tried attaching the file with the file type as JPG and PNG and neither worked, what am I doing wrong?

    Just insert the url of the photo inside image tags J4rrod.

    [.img]http://forums.windowscentral.com/attachments/general-discussion/19782d1324159832-wpcentral-metro-logo-final.jpg[/img.]

    Remove the dots inside the image tags, they were added by me to stop the image appearring, so you could see what to do.

    Hope that makes sense. :D
