Can't set backround picture...

to home screen. Was working before on stock ROM wanted to clean up, did a hard reset, now I cant set pics.

It goes through the motions but when I get to the home screen, its just the same black.

Re: Can't set backround picture...

Thanks for the replies, but im not finding the slider settings or touchflow settings?, maybe im missing something. I do see my pic checked as 'use this picture as the backround' in settings>Today. The pics can either be stock or mine, like I say goes through the all the motions, just doesnt actuall show up.

Re: Can't set backround picture...

TF3D settings for the background is the second to last tab to the end. Then you will see Wallpaper - Home Wallpaper. You can not use the settings under Today to change the wallpaper in TF3D...it will only change the top and bottom bars.

Re: Can't set backround picture...

I have also had issues setting a background picture. I do not use TF3D though. Here is what I have found that works
1) Start Menu-->Settings-->Personal-->Today
2) Uncheck the box Use this picture as the background
3) Soft reset

Now the question is:
Do you want to set the background for TF3D or for the normal today screen not using TF3D

For TF3D
1) Move the slider to the Settings tab
2) Select wallpaper
3) Browse for your wallpaper
4) Select your wallpaper

For a normal today screen not using TF3D
1) Start Menu-->Programs-->Pictures & Videos
2) Browse for the picture that you want
3) Tap on the picture to make it the only one on the screen
4) Tap Menu
5) Tap Set as Today Background
6) Set the transparency and tap OK

Re: Can't set backround picture...

Is there a way to resize pictures? I have a couple pics that I downloaded off the internet to my phone, and want to use them as the background, but, they're too big...so, the edges get cut off.
