Hey all. I just recently upgraded to Windows 7
and am having a few issues with my wallpaper.
Before when I was on Vista and I set a picture
from my digital camera to be my wallpaper, I
would have one copy of the picture on each
monitor (I run dual screens) and it would be
zoomed out so that the whole picture was
displayed. Now in Windows 7 it's zooming the
picture in and is tiling it weird.

If anyone knows how to adjust this it would be
much appreciated. Thanks.

Did you put the picture in the 'my themes' window?

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Yes, I did. I just applied one of the pre-loaded themes and it
displays properly so now I'm really confused...

What format is the image? JPEG? BMP? PNG? TIFF? Other? Try opening with a program like paint and resaving in another format and try that. Also, what is the size (in pixels)? I do not know what the maximum size is, but I imagine you could be too large.

The format is jpg and the default size was like 2600x1600. I even
tried resizing it but it still didn't tile right.

I figured it out. Turns out it has to be sized exactly right. Kind of
annoying but meh. Thanks anyways.
