How to crop, resize and set wallpapers on your BlackBerry

3. Set as your Home screen image

In many cases, the BlackBerry software will give you the option of setting an image to your home screen as soon as you get it on the device (either from your camera, downloaded from an e-mail or taken from the browser), but when all else fails, launch the Media application, check your Pictures folder, find the image you want to use, and hit the Menu key. Set as Home Screen Image should be there.

That’s it! If that Paint and Photoshop stuff felt overwhelming, just remember that it’s really as easy as sending your picture through our Wallpaper Generator and setting the home screen image from the e-mail it sends you.

As always, feel free to leave a comment with your problems and questions.

    You can resize images or photos without leaving your BlackBerry handheld using small apps called Shrink It from Its freeware.

    I Highly recommend (FREE!) FastStone Photo Resizer (version 2.6)!
    Get it here:
    Start the application, set a destination directory for your resized pic, you can optionally convert any format to JPG, click the Advanced button to set the resize you want (I do NOT recommend checking the “Smart Crop” option), select the pics you want to resize, and click Convert.

    I still have problems with both programs mentioned…I have to do it on the computer first..seems more effecient that way….Dude, seems like the Blackberry definately has some bugs to work out, but windows mobile is realible…we’ll see how they work it out, by the way i ran
    accross this site the other day and the idea behind it was quite interesting. This website offers a service where you can have 2 phones lines and 2 voicemail feed into one phone.
    Check it out…

    We’ll see if Blackberry listens to thier clients’ complaints…
