    Xoom Wallpaper Template

    Found this over at the Masters of Development XDA site, it is a template that Ritalin created for our beloved Wallpapers in Photoshop. Hopefully this will take the guess work out of the resolution settings

    Remember to give major props if you find this handy!!!

    **Edit**

    Ok I am working with this now, it gets you in the ballpark but still not perfect.....problem lying in height of wallpaper, width is fine @ 1764 pixels
    It is driving me nuts I have tried everything in the area of 1024 for pixel height and still no cigar....WTF

    Dude, check out Wicked's explanation (http://www.xoomforums.com/forum/moto...allpapers.html) and CZonin's explanation (http://www.xoomforums.com/forum/moto...ust-right.html)...

    The stock Launcher has a 200px bottom, so that when you press the + button (or long-press) on the home screen, it zooms out to the whole picture. Try creating your BG in 1920x1430 (or 1764 which you said works fine), but the bottom 200px's being what will be hidden (whether you want to make it black or extend the color down).

    Unfortunately they must be cropped to the Xoom's aspect ratio or else there will be blank areas which will display differently depending on portrait or landscape view. The only alternative involves some work with an expensive interpolation app (such as Genuine Fractals) which creates pixels that don't exist, adding more real estate with which to crop yet retain the original design.

    I cropped the first image using the Xoom's aspect ratio:

    Ok. I found a cheat. First download photile from the market (free). After installed choose a image, then go to the theme manager and choose slow day.. or night I forget. The one that says slow. Now turn off fade, then turn off touch. Finally, set screen shift to 0. Set wallpaper and bam.

    Edit: in order to be able to flip the screen you must also set the tiles to the smallest size

    Hmm... it should work since it is the same ratio but I am not familiar with the app you are using to add the image. Now you've got me stumped.
