    Hello Dragon,

    To avoid that issue, it would be best to use an image the same size as your screen resolution.

    IrfanView is good for resizing images.
    I used it to re-size my desktop & lock screen & metro screen images to my screen resolution.

    Download IrfanView 4.35 - FileHippo.com
