    ....probably part of my brain!

    When I look at images by clicking on them , I get a small picture (about half screen total
    area) with a big navigation bar taking up about the bottom third of the screen. With a
    640X480 pixel picture eg as taken by the phone (aspect ratio 1.33) that's as expected (but
    is there no zoom?)

    When I down load a 176x220 (0.8 aspect ratio) picture, this fills the screensaver view,
    edge to edge, and looks pretty good. Just like all the adverts show of happy smiling
    people waving their V550 flip phones, displaying exotic full-screen pictures.

    But if I click on the same 176x220 and see it in the "viewer" it has to sit on top of that
    huge navigation bar and is thus shrunk to about two thirds of the screensaver (full
    screen) size and that makes a HUGE difference. Are all the happy smiling people comparing
    screensavers?

    Is it really the case that the only way I can see a decent size view of a picture matching
    the 176x220 "as advertised" screen is to view it as a screen saver?

    Please tell me that it's me that's crazy and not Mr. Motorola - and gently explain what I
    am doing wrong.

    (There is a menu item called "Album" which does not seem to do anything...?)

    Thanks for reading this far!

    Pat.

    Wallpapers and screensavers with a 176x220 resolution will fit the screen
    when you actually set them as such, but in the phone's 'viewer' they will
    always show with the nav bar. If you want to use pictures you've actually
    taken with the phone as wallpaper, you have to download them off the phone
    and onto your computer using a tool such as mobile phonetools, and then crop
    the pic into the proper resolution/aspect ratio. btw, the phone's camera
    has 3 resolutions to take pictures. (High=640x480, Medium 320x240, MMS
    160x120)
