homemade wallpaper issue

ok heres is what im trying to do,,

i take a screen dump of my home screen then i add the orange divider lines to the png in paintshop pro, then i erase all the original home screen items so i am left with just the orange dividers in the correct positions and then simply use my new wallpaper as my home screen wallpaper and the orange dividers would simply be in the correct positions but heres the problem,,,

when i goto gallery and set the new black cnavas with orange dividers as wallpaper it first asks me to choose portrait or landscape so i choose portrait and then i select the size, obviously the whole image and apply to home screen, but the wallpaper is way too big than original size and hence all the dividers are throw out of place. --- reducing the border size of the wallpaper during selection seems to make the end wallpaper even bigger

note. when i open and view the wallpaper i made in image viewers / gallery it shows as the right size and you can see that the dividers are all where i put them and want them.......

this should be really basic i used to use this methond on my desktop back in win 98 win ME days

any info would be appreciated , feel free to rip it out of me i dont feel very clever :-p
