Do you use a vertical wallpaper or horizontal?

    What happens if you use a vertical wallpaper and you tilt the iPad on it's side? Does the wallpaper re-orient or does it stay vertical and therefore become sideways? If it keeps it's orientation, which wallpaper do you prefer... a horizontal one or vertical?

    Also, any links to retina iPad wallpapers?

    My wallpaper is a photo of a building I took. It is a horizontal photo.

    It reorients itself. Make your wallpaper a square with the longer dimension, and it will always display at 100% size - just cropping the sides as needed.

    I use square wallpapers that display full resolution in either orientation.

    Ummmm, no. At 1024x768, iPad 2 wallpapers (1024x1024) get cut off on the sides when you rotate the device.

    The term "full resolution" doesn't mean "whole image"

    A square image (1024x1024) gets cropped but it stays at the correct resolution which ever way you turn the iPad. "full resolution" means th image is still being shown at the same pixel to pixel ratio as it was made, it isn't being shrunk or stretched.

    I guess to me full resolution is... full resolution. A 1024x1024 image cropped to 1024x768 is not "full" resolution.

    You say tomato, I say... :p
