1920x1080 Only (Restart)
Cropping or Sizing Wallpapers... How do YOU do it?
When I got my 1920 x1080 computer screen, I started cropping my photos to that size in my SUMO Paint graphic arts program. I have a camera that shoots 4,000 x 3,000 resolution pictures. I enjoy the challenge of selecting the best 1920 x1080 wallpaper out of my photo that I possibly can. Sometimes I do 2 or 3 different crops and then pick the one (or sometimes 2) crops that I like the best.
With my abstract wallpapers it's easy... I just make the canvas that I'm creating on the proper size, and I'm all set.
I've never gotten images from online, however, and that's the main reason I'm asking this question.
I've seen wallpaper resolutions of so many different sizes on Desktop Nexus. I often wonder how DN members decide what size wallpaper to upload. I guess my question is twofold:
1. When you see something on line that you want to upload do you leave the size of it as it is?
2. If you decide to change the size of the image, how do you do it? Do you use a Graphic arts program? A photo editor? Or is there a way to do it without using either of these tools?
I'd love to know!
My camera probably does have different size settings, but I can't say for sure, because I lost the manual shortly after I got it! I know I need to try to find and print the manual from online, but I haven't gotten around to it yet... and I've had the camera for nearly 2 years.
What is photo gallery-- an app of some kind?

Well, that didn't take long... I'm back about 15 minutes later with an edit to this post. :D
I just clicked on a picture and opened it with Photo Gallery, like you said. I made it to the Microsoft agreement notice, and read it. I didn't go any further though, because I already can resize and color enhance photos in my SUMO paint program. But thanks to you, I now know of another option for photo editing. :) Thank you! :)
I hope other group members ring in on this also. Would love to know how everybody does it... and maybe some people besides me will learn some different methods also. :D
