Let me first say this is not a problem on my PC but a friends so I can't give any details as to Windows version etc.

My friend has a photo she would like to use as her wall paper but she is unable to get the full photo on. The jpeg photo seems as if it is too large for the screen.
She has tried changing the format (bitmap) but this didn't work.
The properties of the photo gives width as 1323 and the height as 2097.

Can anyone tell me how to have this photo fit the screen?

You need to resize it, do you have photo shop 7?
I can do this for you if you like and send it back to you.

Let me know I'll PM you with My e-mail.

If you resize it by pixel size, the width should be 1/3 longer than the height. Have you noticed that monitor resolutions are set in numbers such as 640 X 480, 800 X 600, 1024 X 768, etc.? For instance, if the pixel width of your photo is 400, then the pixel height should be 300. You can stretch it to fit your screen, but if the pixel width/height ratio is too far off, the photo will be distorted.

"width as 1323 and the height as 2097"

unfortunately those dimensions are never going to resize and fill the whole screen looking correct on any monitor...it's taller than it is wide
