    Is or has there been a fix to the resizing (pinch/zoom) for the wallpaper?

    I don't want to download an app like Wallax and I don't mean the reduce motion either.

    Just a simple pinch on the pic to fit my screen.
    I am on a 5s with the latest iOS.

    thanks.

    To Disable/Control the Wallpaper Zoom:
    Open the Settings app
    Tap on Wallpapers & Brightness
    Tap on the screens under Choose Wallpaper
    You should see the ‘Perspective Zoom’ toggle. Tap to switch it OFF.

    To people saying "Just disable perspective zoom", it doesn't help much on the iPad. Portrait is passable, but landscape is still a nightmare. I know it needs to find a safe zone that will work in both modes, but still... It is a huge, HUGE, chore for me to find a wallpaper that looks the way I want. Something may look beautiful in portrait, but then it zooms a ton for landscape, then I have to go back to the drawing board and look for a new wallpaper. This can go for over half an hour sometimes when I am looking to find a new wallpaper and then I just give up and use an Apple default that doesn't zoom in portrait.

    It's not science rockets. If you want to create parallax wallpapers for these devices, use these resolutions.

    iPhone 5 : 1040 x 1536 pixels
    iPhone 4s : 1040 x 1360 pixels
    iPad Mini and iPad 2 : 1424 x 1424 pixels
    iPad 3 an iPad 4 : 2448 x 2448 pixels

    But that's not the point, you should be able to just do a simple pinch and zoom and be done.

    The only way to avoid the crazy zooming is to set your wallpaper in portrait mode, then pan it over to the right a couple of swipes. There are two huge bugs at play here.

    1. In landscape, the wallpaper zooms in WAY more than it does in portrait.

    2. No matter what wallpaper you set (other than apples, weird) in portrait the zoom is less but it's panned over to the left, which causes that extra zoom when turning to landscape.

    ----------

    Please don't post false info. Your dimensions are way off. I make tons of wallpapers and the dimensions are as follows and you can confirm this all over the web.

    iPhone 5/5S: 744x1392
    Retina iPads : 2524x2524 (as of iOS 7.1)

    I feel that there needs to be a class now or something on how this all works since it's about to get more complicated with new iPhone sizes coming in a few weeks. A search for retina wallpapers shows results all over the place.

    You may be correct. These dimensions I found on the internets. I will search for the dimensions you posted to verify.

    The info I posted comes from BGR.

    Which originated with CNet.

    Turning off perspective zoom isn't working for me, so I guess that means just re-size my stuff in Photoshop. Kind of a bummer it's not doing the trick but editing the size of something in PS isn't that a big of deal either. Weird problem!

    Yes, unfortunately there's a difference between who was first to post the dimensions vs who is correct. 2448x2448 for example was indeed correct for ipad until iOS 7.1 came along which is why there are a few conflicting articles on the web.

    I'm on an iPhone 5s with IOS 8 and still having this inability to correctly stop wallpapers from zooming. Beyond annoying when I never has this problem before IOS 7.

    Accessibility/Reduce Motion and Perspective Zoom are set on and off respectively.

    Is there a fix without downloading some 3rd party app?!
