Windows 7: change wallpaper resolution?

change wallpaper resolution?

Would anyone know an easy way (software?) to change wallpaper resolution to fit my screen? I use a 28" monitor that I run at 1900 x 1200 and some of my wallpaper will not fit correctly. I know in XP you could just click "stretch to fit" but I don't think that option is available in 7? If it is, I can't find it.

Thanks!

Programs such as paint and paint.net both can resize images.

If you just want to be able to stretch to fit the image or change the way it appears on your screen this can all be done through personalization>desktop background then in the bottom left hand portion of the screen you should see Picture Position...you can click on that and you can select the way the picture appears on your screen...ie Fill, Fit, Stretch, Tile , Center

Thanks Sky, I was looking right at it and not even seeing it! Also, thanks to swarf, I think paint will come in handy for some other things I was thinking of doing with the wallpaper
