    hey i have a few questions. first off i have made a couple of themes but the wallpaper i get is always stretch because all i do is resize it. I currently use gimp 2 so could someone tell me how to take any picture and resize it but resize it so its not stretched at all. My second question is if anyone could lead me in the direction of a tutorial on to make slider templates that would e awesome thx!

    yes but you obviously didnt understand my question. I need someone to teach me how to resize images to the right dimensions without stretching the image at all and i need someone to teach me how to make slider templates in either gimp or photoshop.

    from the large size, resizing makes the image distort, so u must crop it. do u have an idea how to crop but first resize the large image to it's height 480pixels w/c the iPod has, then crop it.

    i dont think its possible. you can either crop it and loose half the picture or reisize it and squish it. i prefer to crop it into the rough rectangular shape of the ipod using any image editing program. i then use imagicon so it can resize it to the ipods actual shape. it wont look squished at all and as long as you get the main part of the picture in, it looks good
