You cant scale and set wallpapers like before!
This is crap
Its a beta.
They do that to keep the parallax effect working correctly.
Oh FFS, this is becoming a meme on this site.
Just like "Safari seems snappier"
No, it's a FEATURE.
In order for the phone to show you the parallax effect on a wallpaper, it has to zoom in slightly so that the edges of the wallpaper are slightly hidden, which can then be shown by tilting the phone's gyroscope.
If you enable "reduced motion" in accessibility options, it disables parallax effects and you can zoom and scale the wallpaper while you're setting it as in previous iOS versions.
"Leather will be the end of us all, Apple will never ever fix this!" "What?!? No more leather?!? iOS 6 was so much better looking!"
Same conversation all over again
Except it doesn't.
You can't zoom in on the stock wallpapers but you can on your own photos.
Thanks for the tip, because this was bugging me as well.
this is the kind of answer I was looking for. Thanks for that bit of info glitch.
you see, it's really not that hard to be nice and answer a simple question for someone rather than giving smart ass answers.....gfy
Alternatively, you could get the exact size wallpaper for your iPhone/iPad then you'd have no issues.
you have missed the entire point of this thread. If I wanted an exact size I would make one. I'm talking about photos of any size, stretching and scaling to fit however you want on the phone
Parralax or not, it will not let you center an image (my own photo) EVEN IF there is plenty of "edge space" left over after scaled.
Really weird. This works fine for me. I can scale/stretch any photo in my camera roll. Beta 6, upgraded from ios6...not a clean install.
The only sort of fix I can find is to go to your photos and edit the photo you want and stretch it to how you want it to look and then take a screen shot and then use the photo created by that screen shot for your wallpaper.
To take a screen shot:
1. Press and hold down Home (round button center bottom)
2. Press and release Sleep (top right button of phone)
2a. You will hear a camera-like shutter sound
There are now apps in the app store that help you to fix your wallpaper it easily rather than taking screen shots etc.
Wallax - Has more wallpaper options + fix
Wallpaper Tweak - Just fix
I did exactly that and it still greatly zooms in on the photo and can't be adjusted
I just tried t on my iPad 2 and it does work. You need to first enable reduce motion then go back and reselect your wallpaper. Don't touch the wallpaper i.e. change the size. You'll see the the wallpaper now properly scaled.
Sorry not true. With parallax off you can zoom out a bit more but the whole screen must still be taken up by an image. Before iOS 7 you could choose to have black borders.
On iOS 7, unless your wallpaper source is the same aspect ratio as your screen, you can never get the whole image visible.
