    All I've got to say about choosing picture backgrounds is, it helps a lot if the upper right corner is very plain. You want to be able to read the time, and a cluttered picture isn't good for legibility.

    Yup. IMO, anyway. You can also use the Photos app on the iPhone to crop a photo just the way you want. Choose the 4:5 aspect ratio and it'll fit the AW screen perfectly.

    Bad background:

    Better background (although the sky is a little bright):

    James would feel crossed if you didn't use him instead of Thomas!

    Check the clock at the top of my screenshots, too. You'll see it takes less than a minute. Go practice.

    Just use Photos.

    Here's the trick to getting 4:5 --

    If the selection area is wider than it is tall (aka "landscape"), you'll see the 5:4 aspect ratio instead.

    Get past this by dragging the selection area so it's taller and skinnier, like in my fourth screenshot. Then, when you choose an aspect ratio, the 4:5 option will appear.

    The AW's aspect ratio is the same 4:5, and it automatically resamples an image. You won't need to pick an exact pixel:pixel size.
