Android is an awesome platform for smartphones and tablet devices. It offers more features, apps an choice of devices to users. Most of the world’s greatest OEMs manufacture Android devices and, as a result, we have hundreds of device models to choose from. Being of different screen sizes, Android does not have a universal resolution for wallpapers. Thus, if you have a low or mid-end smartphone, you will not be able to apply a wallpaper with bigger resolution and vice versa.

Have you ever experienced the irritating situation where you were not able to enjoy your favorite wallpaper on your phone’s or tablet’s screen in its totality? I often see people searching for wallpapers with specific px size for their devices. Android has an inbuilt cropping tool that pops up automatically whenever you try to apply a wallpaper that has a different resolution that of your device’s screen.

It is really a good feature but sometimes you might get irritated with it. Suppose you have an awesome wallpaper that you want to show on your home or lockscreen without having to cut it from any side. When you try to set it, you are forced to crop it to maintain the aspect ratio of the image according to your device.

Do you feel  annoyed with this imposed cropping feature because it does not let you have a wallpaper with all desired elements? I believe you must have gone through such situation. Fortunately, Android is blessed with a huge app market with millions of apps. Many of these apps have magical powers to grant your wishes. Today, we have come with some nice  image tool apps that let you set a wallpaper the way you want. The apps listed below put aside the cropping factor and let you set full-size backgrounds without cropping.

  1. well I just downloaded the “best app” the Image 2 Wallpaper, and it was simple enough to use, but it STILL doesn’t show the entire picture! It’s better than what I had, so I’ll leave it, but just wanted to throw that out there!

  2. Well, for 4 years i’ve been handling an android, and for 4 years I’ve wasted my time for searching ways to fit the full photo in a wallpaper….THANKS MUCH TO YOU, NOW MY 4 YEAR STRUGGLE BECAME AN EASY HEAVEN!!

  3. Hey, I’d just really like to take the time to say thank you! I was honestly ready to throw my cellphone out the highest window of my house. Then I read this, downloaded “imafe2wallpaper” and it literally felt like magic, no more struggles, no more trying to move photos to different apps. A dream come true, for real. THANK YOU SO MUCH! ^.^

  4. If you don’t have any internet connection,you may:

    1. Open the file you want for home screen wallpaper (let’s say “Picture A”)

    2. Press your Menu>>set as>>choose as Home and lock screens (You now have Picture A as a wallpaper for your Home Screen and Lock Screen without cropping)

    3. Next, open the file you want for lock screen wallpaper (let’s say “Picture B”), and set it as your lock screen wallpaper (for lock screen wallpaper,cropping is not required unlike for the home screen wallpaper)


  5. it doesn’t work for lock screen…
    help me please…. I need the same for my lock screen.

  6. Ya this is really annoyed me for a while…later got an idea to google 😉 and found your blog.
    Thanks a lot Rakesh Shukla for posting this great solution…
    Image 2 Wallpaper works excellent!!! Now i am so happy i can set beautiful wallpapers with out crop in my 9.7 inch tablet…(iBerry auxus Core X4 3G)…

  7. I tried them all and like Image 2 the best. Unfortunately, it broke wallpaper scrolling on my S3. I was fine with that when setting wallpaper with this app, but when I went back to setting it the old fashioned way, it still wouldn’t scroll. Could be just a one-time glitch. I’ll fool around with it some more when I’m fresh in the morning. Good stuff. Thanks for passing it along.

  8. Try them all and let us know which is the best. In my view, Image 2 Wallpaper is better than others. As always, thanks for sharing your views. 🙂

  9. This is great. You’re right — this is one of those aggravations I run into all the time, yet I’ve never looked into how to get around it. I intend to try these apps one by one to see which one works the best. I’m constantly changing my wallpaper (yes, I’m one of those) so simplifying the process would be a great benefit. Another awesome tip, thanks.
