Thought we could get a thread going for panoramic wallpapers. I attached one I took in Sedona, AZ

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?

I want to know how to download pictures to panoramas folder?
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.

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.

Have fun with these...

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.

Pano jumping around

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.

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