    I beg to differ.

     

    But i'm also not a teenage girl.

    so you have only ever used 1 wallpaper in the entire life of your phone, good for you, bye now.

  • Softtail_JJ Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    So... i just installed update 7.1.1 on my iPhone 5 as of April 23rd, 2014, 12:25PM, guess what, no wallpaper fix....... i have no words... atleast none that are allowed to be posted on here....

  • wavymitch Level 2 Level 2 (400 points)

    Yep, because it's a non issue. You're probably looking at third party apps bud.

     

     

    And for the record I certainly have changed wallpapers on my phone, but not to a degree that large.

  • BER88 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    What do you mean it's non issue? It is a big issue for everyone who want to use a nice picture for wallpaper. It is indeed a very big part of a mobile device to snap a nice picture as please and turn it into a nice wallpaper to look at. I hope this is just an oversight or a bug or something other than by design. Otherwise I will sell it on Craigslist and buy a Samsung tablet that don't have this problem plus allowing me to send email with PDF attachment. Coming on Apple, fix the god **** problem. Samsung is closing in on you in many fronts.

    I rotate my wallpaper DAILY, because it pleases me. THIS DEVICE IS AN EFFIN POS. I've traveled the world, and I expect to see my photos in the proper aspect ratio and NOT MORPHED. CAN THESE EFFIN GENUISES DO THAT?  this company is so effin overrated... bunch of effin dopes.

  • SteveMcQwark Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I tried it and it worked. The important thing is to make sure to have the proper orientation. If the picture is portrait, take the screenshot in landscape, and if the picture is in landscape, take the screenshot in portrait. You might want to do it twice (take a screenshot of the screenshot) to make sure that the picture is thoroughly windowboxed.

    Congratulations SteveMcQwark you got it! This worked for me too.

     

    There's a slight loss of resolution, but the full image can now be made to fit.

     

    As I a software engineer, this suggest to me that the OS is simply calling a wrong function somewhere (I.e. Calling a portrait photo manipulation function when it should be calling a landscape manipulation function and visa versa) -or maybe passing a photo attribute incorrectly.

     

    With this new information, hopefully Apple will be able to fix the problem in the next release. Surely it is not intended that if you want the entire image as wallpaper that you have to first screenshot it in the other orientation!

     

    BTW, I tried the whole set image as wallpaper thing on a friends iPad2 (that's what I have) that has NOT been upgraded to iOS7, and confirmed that it did NOT exhibit the problem. So there's no question this is a software bug in iOS7.

     

    Kudos to SteveMcQwark. Now let's see if Apple is listening....

  • frustrated-js Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I should add that the resulting image isn't as sharp as the original and it's still zoomed a bit (not as much as before, but it's usable until Apple releases a true fix). The clarity and brightness seem off a bit too.

  • BER88 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Updated iOS 7.1.1 today but still no fix. Not happy at all.

    wavymitch - without stooping to your level, you have no idea what you are talking about.  There are many people who enjoy looking at photos of their family, events they have recently taken part in, wedding photos, etc. on their device when first waking it up.  Why do you insist on thinking that everyone who enjoys looking at photos is a teenage girl?  This is a problem for those of us who were able to do just that - but due to an update designed to IMPROVE our device, actually did the opposite.  We are upset, because it is a simple fix that Apple has refused to do.  We spend lots of money on devices and trusted that we would be able to continue to use them in the way we did when we first purchased them.  This is a consumer rights issue.  The photo resizing is NOT the only issue with the updates, several of them by now....  This is an issue with a company that refuses to listen to their customers.  I too, am thinking that I will just go with Samsung.  I really like my Samsung phone, and each update I get makes it better and faster.  Not so with Apple anymore.....sad, really.

  • wavymitch Level 2 Level 2 (400 points)

    Awesome, enjoy your samsung and photo wallpapers.

  • BER88 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    You bet! Wavymitch. Enjoy every minute of it of my Nexus 5 wallpaper. But this is not about Apple vs Android since we all here, I suppose, own a I-device or 2. I say, it is about Apple's attitude in responding to complaints. wavyitch, maybe, you are an Apple  engineer that don't appreciate any complaint or are you just one of those happy go lucky guy with easily satisfied personality? I dunno. For now, I won't be spending no money on apps, on iTunes or movies until Apple makes a stance on it. People see my iPad Air always ask me how I like it. You bet I will share my displeased experience with them and show them what I meant on my iPad Air until such day....

    It is hard to read this inflamed back-and-forth and grasp that this technically trivial but very pleasant feature USED TO WORK SEEMLESSLY! As noted earlier, forget Android, this is stuff that worked on Win 95.

     

    Apple folks broke it. Why?

     

    Do they even read these posts?

     

    What is their excuse for leaving the matter festering for 7 months?

     

    I challenge anyone from APPL to come on here, identify themselves by name, and explain this matter as though they were on the carpet in front of S. Jobs.

    In iOS 7.0.x, you just needed the pixel dimensions of your device + 200 pixels/side, and you had perfect parallax wallpaper. (This resulted in 1040x1536 for iPhone 5/5C/5S, and 2448x2448 for Retina iPads.) Now in 7.1 these images still get needlessly zoomed when "Perspective Zoom" is turned on. If I turn the Zoom off and keep "Reduce Motion" turned off, the Parallax effect (which I like) is all but gone.

     

    So my question is: in 7.1, how do I keep the Parallax effect but lose the Perspective Zoom? Is this impossible at present - other than to use the stock wallpaper images?
