It's annoying how you have to take one for it took work. I wanted one of NYC but I can't go there to take it lmao. Hopefully they fix that, or if thing only allow photos in the panorama album for it to work at least let us add panoramic photos to the album!

do you have an iPhone 5? B/c when I go to save it via my iPhoe it just puts it into my camera roll, and it has to be in panorama album for it to work.

Does your guys' lockscreen act weird with these panoramic wallpapers? Whenever I tilt my phone up or down the picture moves vertically created black edges on the bottom or top.. Anyone else?

Email it to yourself or use dropbox. Save to camera roll. It should automatically add itself to the album named Panoramic. That's what I did.

Have you tried saving pictures from this thread and looking in the panorama folder? I realised after seeing someone talk about them that they get saved both places, or should. Just go to settings as though you were going to set a background and look for that folder, you should find images in there.

It works with this picture but the one I downloaded from google. No idea why. Anyway thanks.

Is the one that doesn't work a png file instead of a jpg? While iOS displays png files all photos are saved as jpg. Either that or maybe the vertical resolution isn't the correct size. Just guessing since I'm not using iOS 7.

It's definitely possible to have them added to the panorama folder. The system does it automatically.

Automatically that is, if the panorama meets a width and height criteria. I don't know the exacts but it took a little bit for the system to generate the folder in the first place. I kept taking panoramas but it wasn't doing anything. I had to make a full panorama for it to work. I didn't do a full test to see what's required and I haven't looked but, frustrating no matter.

I downloaded the picture in the first post, and the wallpaper showed as all black. But I restarted my phone and it showed up.

That's fantastic, thank you.

I'm trying to get the hang of 'centering' the image when the device is stationary (like iPad on, sitting in case displaying just the home screen). Anyone figured out a trick for that yet?

On another note, I love how the dock and folders take on the hues of the wallpaper...lovely.

I have tried all the panos and even tried resizing them to 1136 for Iphone5 but they keep jumping around in the homescreen as they look only half height? Panos I took myself are fine and work a treat

Anyone else having this issue?

Anyone know hoe to fix it

Dude. It's doing the same thing for me man. On my iPad trying to use a panorama for a background wallpaper at this time on beta 2 is even more frustrating.

At this stage it's just buggy some work great some don't and do as you described

I've managed to get it working. It works if you save the pictures when browsing on the iPhone. It doesn't if you get them on another computer and upload to photostream.

Using a panoramic picture as the wallpaper makes me dizzy. I reckon some people will like it, it's just not my taste...

Maybe Apple will allow the wallpaper to slowly scroll (fluidly) without us needing to move the phone?

Is there a way to turn a normal photo into a Panoramic one? Id love to use a shot from a vacation on a different camera (probably 16x9).

just an fyi... I resized a regular photo to 10800x2332 on my mac and emailed the photo to myself. Opened it on my iphone and saved to camera roll. At first it didnt show up, but after a power cycle it was in the Panorama folder.

Picture looks great but squished. I guess I need to crop it and not resize it? Any help?

It appears it doesnt need that exact resolution. I cropped it to about half of that and it still showed up in the panorama folder.

Works like magic after I download your picture, it automatically went straight to panorama folder. My question is how come I downloaded pano pics and it never goes direct to the folder itself?:apple:

Wish this pano wallpaper would work with Phyotosynth. Then you can have a full 360 view of the wallpaper

oh nm.. it can be any wallpaper in the My Panoramas folder but you cant spin yourself around in a 360 to view it

You can use your iPhone 4 and 4S and 5 to see how panoramic wallpapers will look on iOS 7 without installing iOS 7. Go by this link http://panoramico.audiko.com there you can see from your iphone wall papers in motion.

Did Apple remove panoramic wallpapers from the GM?
I don't see the "Panoramic Wallpaper" folder under settings/Wallpapers and Brightness. When I select a panoramic photo as the wallpaper, it just shows the leftmost part of the photo as a still, even after the reboot that some people mentioned. I believe the photo needs to be in that folder to work, but don't see the option.

Would someone please conform if this is still possible, and if so, then how?

Thanks.

I was really disappointed to see this feature being removed from iOS 7, it was one of the features that made me really excited about updating. I've heard that the battery drain was an issue that made them remove it and it does make sense but it still looked really slick and definitely would bring more life to people's Apple devices.
