    I am having a problem with photos on my iPad 3
    Until recently I was able to take a photo from my camera roll on my iPad and use it successfully as a wallpaper however lately when I try this or even use photos I have used successfully in the past to create a wallpaper they turn out huge and over fill the iPad screen.
    Can anyone tell me why this is happening and how I can correct it.
    I don't recall changing any settings.
    Kind regards

    Hi Harry and welcome to the forum! My guess is that has only been happening since you upgraded to iOS 7.x That's a problem we've all experienced and is a less salubrious feature of the latest system update. Here's a thread where some of us discuss/lament about it:
    http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-4-forum/114101-updated-ios7-photos-stretched.html
    There are workarounds by downloading some apps. I've downloaded Wallax but still generally use photos that will not cause me those wallpaper distortions.
    Hey, I'm just "down the road" from you in Adelaide and also have an iPad3. Enjoy the forum mate:)
