    Ok, I just found the solution Thank God

     

    You see how with the new update the icons move as you tilt the phone to give you that "fancy" 3D look, well because of this the wallpaper gets distorted.

     

    I turned this option off, and the wallpaper resizing issue went away

     

    Here is how to turn that dumb 3D option off (which also drains your battery):

     

    Navigate to the iOS 7 Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Reduce Motion -> ON

     

    Yep, that's all.

     

    Enjoy

    That doesn't work for my iPad 2 either. I had to used AntiCrop and make my image larger than I need in order to scale it back to what I DO need. I also like to change the color of my dock on my iPhone 4S. Can't do that in iOS 7. The shape is too opaque, and too different from that in the app I use.

    But some of us don't use Apple's wallpapers. I have hundreds that I switch around, not one of them theirs.

    I love customization, and while Apple doesn't offer much of that in order to keep things simple, backgrounds have always been a thing for me. It is very annoying that the set wallpaper automatically zooms in on a space perhaps a quarter the area of the actual picture.

    The resizing apps aforementioned are not only a hassle to go through just to set a wallpaper, but they also decrease the quality and the image is completely messed up if you change the screen orientation.

    I'm not sure as to why this was changed in the first place, but it definitely should be fixed.

    This seems to be the best option at this rate.... the iOS 7.0.2 update (released yesterday), did nothing to fix this issue. The only problem is that not everyone has the iOS 6 downgrade path available - this is only applicable to certain hardware types / iPad models. I'll be downgrading mine tonight and have advised our users not to update to iOS7 on their iPads.

    If you manage to accomplish backdating, more power to you. Apple stopped signing (or validating) any version of iOS except for iOS 7 on those devices that are compatible.

    Yup, you are right, they aren't allowing / verifying that image now.... Looks like I'll be unboxing one of the older pads from our stock tomorrow.

    I am sooo glad to know it's not just me.  Like others have said, I have my favorite pics that I like to use for my wallpaper.  Now everything just looks HUGE!!  Apple, please fix this scaling issue.  I am otherwise happy w/the i0s7 upgrade.

     

    Thank you

    vlad3368,

     

    THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!!  I just followed your instructions and it worked.  Apple still needs to fix that bug though b/c you should be able to use both functions.

     

    Thanks again.

    Here's a fix I discovered that doesn't require an app download.

    the wallpaper does scale properily if you turn off the paralax effect under reduce motion in setting other wise the ios will scale its self for the effect on the homescreen

    I have the same issue, I had to fiddle around with screen shot in order to get the scale I wanted.

     

    It ***** that it's so zoomed in. A few wallpapers I have look horrible zoomed in. I want them to be in normal scale and the option of zooming out, like they were in the iOS6.

    Turn off ios 7 parallax. You should then be able to resize OK.

     

    Access General Settings, and then select Accessibility. Here there is an option called Reduce Motion, select that and turn on the little switch. This will disable Parallax
