    I just discovered this pretty cool trick today:

    If you are trying to use an image for your wallpaper that is high-res or has an odd aspect ratio you can set a portion of it as the wallpaper by zooming in to that area before setting it as the wallpaper.

    For example, I tried to set a picture as my wallpaper today that was 1920x1080. When I first set it as a wallpaper it was centered and zoomed to fit the screen width (with black bars above and below). I opened the pic again and zoomed on the section I wanted as my background, clicked to set it and presto! Much easier than going back into photoshop and cropping it.
