One of the cool things that you can do on your smartphone is use one of our own pictures as the default background, known as the wallpaper.

One of the little frustrating issues that many iPhone users experienced with the most recent iOS 7 update is getting pictures setup as wallpaper properly.

When you choose one of your pictures for your custom wallpaper you don’t have a lot of control over what ends up being displayed.

Because the phone automatically sizes the image, it can often zoom in to the wrong part of the image or cut off limbs or heads with no option to move things around.

If you want a lot more control over what actually gets displayed as your default image, checkout an app called Wallpaper Fix.

Wallpaper Fix gives you pinpoint control so you can resize, rotate and position the image to exactly the way you want it displayed.

The app essentially allows you to modify an image in a way that will cause the automatic sizing in iOS 7 to properly display it without the zoomed in or misaligned results.

Wallpaper Fix works on the iPhone and iPad and costs 99 cents in the iTunes store.
