Wallpaper question

Im using ADW Launcher on a rooted NC. I have/had a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge that I used as my wallpaper. I tried a couple other pics the other night but now when I try to come back to that one it only allows me to crop it and the cropped version isn't as sharp. I remember being able to access and set wallpaper another way than going through the menus that used the entire image but can't remember how I did that. Loved that pic and had the fuzzy, too close one's I'm stuck with now. Anyone run into this before? I need to stop changing things, I guess!

Apparently ADW Launcher and the B&N Home screen don't play well together - and wallpapers are the victim. You are probably noticing that it zooms in on the wallpaper - making it fuzzy and out of whack.

Some reports are that you can use the B&N Settings to set the wallpaper (didn't work well for me). Others recommend an app called "wallpaper set size" or something like that (didn't work well for me either).

I took the image I wanted for my wallpaper and on my PC cropped it to 1280x1024 (for a 3 screen home page) and saved it as a .png instead of .jpg. I then copied it to /media/my files/wallpapers. Then in the settings of the Nook it showed up under wallpapers (I had to scroll down). It was exactly as I wanted it - didn't zoom in or anything. A JPG in the wallpaper folder might work too?
