I cant find this issue here. Since my upgrade to ios7 I cant resize my photos to use as wallpaper. All the pics are too big now. When I try it seems I can only resize so much but cant set it. Is this an issue to any others and if so how can I fix it

This discussion on the Apple forum is exactly what you're asking about.

https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5318510?start=0&tstart=0

I found several possible options on here that people have mentioned.

"I just turned of the Parallax Effect and my wallpapers have returned to normal."

There is a link on this post to do this.

"I was able to rectify the larger picture by just resetting it as my wallpaper again. The thing is you have to take a few extra steps that are easy to miss:

1. Go to photo you wish to use

2. In the bottom left corner of the screen, click the blue box that has an up arrow coming out of it (you will see a check mark in the bottom right corner of the photo)

3. Click "next" at the top right of the screen

4. Scoll the menu and select "use as wallpaper"

5. Click "next" at the top right of the screen again

6. Move and Scale

7. Click "set" and choose appropriate action."

You'll be able to size it after you do this:

Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion > On

Doesn't work for me either. I have had parallax off since day 1. On a 5 with 7.0 brand new 5S with 7.0.1 restored software, power cycles, the whole nine.

My issue is with pics taken before iOS 7 are huge and I can't scale down.

Pics with new camera with iOS 7 I can make bigger than it comes up

I works fine for me, but the pictures I'm using aren't huge so that might be why.
