Stretch, Border, Crop or Center?

There are four ways of showing an image on your screen.

Stretch will stretch your image to fit the screen. If your image shape is close to the screen shape, it normally looks ok, but a tall image on a wide screen monitor will look a little squashed.

Border will make the image fit your screen without squashing it. It adds a border to the sides, or top and bottom, depending on your image size.

Crop will chop the edges off your image to make it fit the screen.

Center will put the image in the middle of the screen without resizing it in any way.

Setting an existing wallpaper

If you want to reuse an existing MultiPaper image, go to your display settings and choose your Multipaper file. Set the image to be tiled.

But, my saved image looks weird

your saved image looks a little weird. In order to make you image display properly, it has to be skewed a little. When its set as your wallpaper, it will look normal

I can only save as .bmp

Ah, you must be a Windows XP user. XP doesn't like setting .JPGs as wallpaper. When you do it via Control Panel it converts it to a .BMP in the background and saves that copy somewhere on your hard disk. Rather than convert back and forth between file types and drop secret files on your computer, it saves as the format your computer can handle
