On your other wallpapers/images, I see they are done the same way either stretched or squished to fit the pixel size of the image needed. What you should be doing instead is creating or grabbing a base image and then either cropping to the pixel dimension you need (such as 320x240) as you need, rather than stretching them in your graphics program.
Yeah that's what I was doing. Trying out a shortcut. Didn't work out so good. I'll go back to doing it the long way or I'll go back to creating my own images at the proper res. Thanks for the input.

Getting images down to 240x260 to fit a pearl though is not easy. I was able to fix the Rushmore pics but I had to add a border. Not great for the 240x260 but ok for the 480x320. Just not sure of the color for the border. I have 2. Black and White.
