iPhone wallpaper getting cut off

Oct-10-2013 | Author: | iOS7


If you’ve upgraded your device to iOS7 and notice that the pictures you’re trying to set as wallpaper are getting cut off something terrible, there’s an easy fix.

Go to Settings>General>Accessibility>Reduce Motion

Apples own website explains this in more detail:

iOS 7 uses a parallax effect to create the perception of depth on your Home screen and elsewhere. When this feature is on, you may notice that your:

Wallpaper, icons, and alerts shift slightly as you move your phone.
When setting a wallpaper in Settings > Wallpapers & Brightness, the photo or image will be slightly zoomed and cannot be scaled to fit to the screen.
You can change this behavior by enabling Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion.

Note: If zoomed, you will need to rescale your wallpaper to fit to the screen.
