What phone is it? I'm guessing a smaller screened android? Hence why wall papers aren't the right size?

I don't know about Android but on iphone I always used "wallpapers HD", got every kind of picture you can think of. But that may not help you as you can't select the size (as far as I know I've never tried)

Have you tried using google search? Search for wall papers but put the size of your screen into the search, then select images, see what it comes up with

Seems im not the only one with problems on the samsungs with the zedge app: quote from zedge forum:

**user** Being a SGSII owner I'd like to see 480x800 wallpapers for the device as it is the default resolution. All I find in Zedge are the 960*800 scrollable ones, so any ideas?


Reply: 480 * 800 is just a single screen size , androids have upto 7 screens so that is the standard resolution , sorry for the messup.

**User** Android may have 7 screens but I don't use them all, besides except one screen all the screens are filled up with apps and stuffs. So it's meaningless to have a wall for those screens for me. And GSII's screen resolution is 480x800, not 960x800. Don't know why Zedge had put all scrollable walls but there should be a section of 480x800 walls, the original resolution of GSII.
Meanwhile I've to use my profile as S8500 to get 480x800,

So for zedge i have done what this chap has been doing and enter select a different mobile. Shame you cant put a different model in the app itself but there is no way you can do this.

I have the same phone as the OP and I just go online and search for something and then save it to my phone. Both my lock and home screen photos are from Google Images.

No but the wallpaper I wanted probably wouldn't have been on it. I tend to go for really obscure things.

deviantArt, best site for finding images IMO.
