    does anyone know any app that can make your own wallpaper using your own pictures for your android device?

    I purchased the Koi and Aquarium wallpapers by kittehface, they're both so good looking and light on battery but it kinda sucks how they don't support higher resolutions, I use them but they're mostly obviously low res upscaled to the phone display

    I use Bing Live Wallpaper
    One of the best apps
    Uses the daily Bing background as your wallpaper
    i have it on my phone and tablet, so they always have a new wallpaper each day!

    was hoping to see something that could allow me to use a single image that I have and apply it as a wallpaper without having to meet a specific size requirement.
    the only one I found that works somewhat is Wallpaper Wizardrii which will apply any image and scale to fit. The problem is that the app is still buggy and will get some anomalies when you rotate the screen.

    Icepick, I believe all you have to do is go into your gallery, find the pic you want to use, select and hold and it comes up with an option to set as wallpaper or set as home screen. It will ask you to crop oversized images to fit, so you should only have to change the picture if you must have the entire pic on the phone. I always choose personal pics of nature shots, so I just pick the "focus" of the shot and expand the area around it to fill the screen. Hope that helps.
