I'd like to use some jpeg images as wall paper for desk top but if I trim part of these to make these more to my taste then I am left with a black margin where the removed piece of image existed and that simply shows when I apply the image as a wall paper. I use irfan view to trim these but I believe the same happens with other image editors too.  Any solutions?

Use Irfan to resize the image to your desktop resolution, i.e., 1024x768 or 800x600 or other.

And save the image as bitmap (BMP).

When selecting the wall paper tick "center".

I am afraid this solution is an absolute failure. This is the way I did it any way before I posted. Also I do not wish to be restricted to centre. I like strtch and tiling at times too.

In IrfanView, with the image opened, have you tried:

Options > Set as Wallpaper > Stretched ?

And in IrfanView if you cut a selection of the image and paste it, you will see the selection reopen as a new image without any borders.

I have now found the correct solution. The right way is to select the needed part of the image and then crop it from the edit menu rather than cut it. The answer accepted above is incorrect, but thanks to zee for trying.

korda,

Sorry, but in IrfanView it is Cut Selection, clear image and paste.

No crop involved and the wallpaper stretch will complete the job.

But anyway, it's nice to know you're still around.

Thanks!
