    Can someone tell me the proper dimensions for this image? I'm losing what little sanity I have left trying to figure this out so it fits inside the text window properly for both portrait and landscape.

    I remember reading somewhere a while ago that using 480x480 would cover it for both landscape and portrait.

    That's not working out too well, either. Oh well, thanks though. :)

    i found the same issue, the 480x480 is your best bet you just have to find an image that looks good

    you want something that the object is centred or else it doesnt look great in portrait

    here is my example of one i made recently

    SMSBackground.png IMG_0107.PNG

    as you can see the girl is centred in the original but in portrait mode she is offset to the right this is done so in landscape she is centered again

    hope that helps you pick a photo that works

    Sure does. Thanks. And I think I'm on the verge of creating the world's first Scratch'n'sniff monitor.

    Check out my screenshot here. The SMSBackground.png image goes inside your theme folder, but not inside the bundles or UIImages folder.
