custom iphone wallpaper-installation tutorial

Instead of starting from scratch to make a new iphone wallpaper, I gave this method a try and it worked:

I cropped a section of the new wallpaper I installed on my computer (but you could take these dimensions and crop anything you'd like). Here is an excerpt I found online describing the iphones screen size and resolution:

The iPhone’s screen will be measured at 3.5 inches diagonally, with a resolution of 320 pixels x 480 pixels at 180 pixels per inch (ppi). It is significant to note that computer monitor LCDs have a standard of 72 pixels per inch. The iPhone’s screen will be extremely crisp and clear in comparison, which is a good thing for a small screen which will have lots of text on it.

After I cropped my new image, I changed the resolution and saved this into a folder designated iphone wallpaper. I put this under MY PICTURES, making it easy to find and sync on i tunes. After syncing, on your iphone go to settings, then wallpaper. Your new folder named iphone wallpaper should appear. Click on your new wallpaper if you have more than one, and then click apply.

Good luck. Again, my design can be found below and downloaded for free.
