    I'm trying to use an image as a wallpaper but it always starts off super zoomed in for some annoying reason. I can drag it out so it fits but then it snaps back to the zoomed one and won't let me crop it that way.

    Is there an app that will get the dimensions right so a photo fits nicely on the screen? ios6 was kinda similar but there were ways around that with apps. Even if I edit it in whitagram or something it still starts off super zoomed in -_-

    I'm having the same problem. Wallpaper looks fine in the camera roll but when you set it to lock screen it blows up and you can't seem to change it.

    Lockscreen image is full-screen now, so for best results use a portrait-orientation image instead of a landscape-orientation image. I understand you can reduce the zoom somewhat by selecting "reduce motion" in Accessibility.

    It's the parallax. You can either disable it or use wallpapers with the size: 744x1392

    It's because it has to be zoomed in for the parallax effect to work. You can turn off the parallax effect if you want, and then it won't zoom the image at all.

    Settings>General>Accessibility>Reduce Motion(On)
