Someone! Please please please make a Muzei extension of this! In fact I believe this should be part of the default options.

These would look beautiful on my Nexus 6.

My Android wallpaper today is 'Impression, sunrise' by Claude Monet, 1873. #MuzeiFeaturedArt

http://www.wikiart.org/en/claude-monet/impression-sunrise?utm_source=Muzei&utm_campaign=Muzei
When Impression, Sunrise hung at its first exhibition in 1874, art critic Louis Leroy derisively used the term “Impressionistic,” from the title of this painting, to describe Monet’s works. This term was quickly adopted by what were soon to be known as the Impressionist painters, and the exhibition which included other works by Impressionist artists, was from then on referred to as the “Impressionist Exhibition.” This painting was later stolen in...

It's definitely on my list, but as always it's a balancing act between new features and bugs.

I got an update last night...

NEW: Live wallpaper API support, enabling Quicktheme to reliably work with live wallpaper apps. For an example of this in action, check out the excellent Minima Pro.
NEW: Shortcuts & gestures (Settings -> Shortcuts) both expanded and fully customizable. Gestures supported include: single/double/triple tap Home button; double/triple tap empty space; swipe up single/two fingers; swipe down single/two fingers; swipe left screen edge/swipe leftmost Home screen/swipe right screen edge/swipe rightmost Home screen; and pinch in/out.
NEW: Ability to configure action taken by a gesture. Actions include load an app, load a shortcut, toggle All Apps, toggle Quickdrawer, toggle Quickpage, open Action 3 settings, display overview mode, lock/unlock desktop, lock device, open recents, open notifications, open text search and open voice search.
NEW: When searching, use Google search box overlay instead of switching into the Google app. Can be changed via (Settings -> Shortcuts -> Global search mode).
NEW: As requested, an additional Donate option has been added for people who are so inclined (Settings -> Help -> Donate).
NEW: Animate to/from the All Apps background color when opening/closing All Apps (requires Android 5.0 or later).
NEW: Home screen indicators updated to match Android 5.1's style.
NEW: Allow importing of Action 3 layouts by other launchers. Thanks Kevin from Nova for the prod here.
IMPROVEMENT: Gesture detection works over icons as well as empty space.
IMPROVEMENT: Shortcuts to open notification panel works on Samsung devices running Android 5.x (requires granting access to the Accessibility system unfortunately).
IMPROVEMENT: Size and positioning of Google search widget perfectly matches with the Google app on tablets.
IMPROVEMENT: "Remove Shutter" option is available both when picking up and putting down a Shutter and from the overflow menu.
CHANGE: No longer default to opening Google Now when swiping right on leftmost Home screen. This option can be configured via Settings -> Shortcuts -> Leftmost Home screen -> Search.
CHANGE: Increase default double/triple tap delay to 275 milliseconds.
FIX: Use light touch effect when Up button is pressed in Settings.
FIX: If a Shutter/folder is open on the Quickpage, don't close Shutter/folder and Quickpage with the same swipe gesture.
FIX: Fix behaviour oddities when changing settings via the "Action 3 Settings" All Apps item.
FIX: Misc. stability fixes.

I recently decided to print a photo I took on my Nexus 4 at the Asda photo services. I sent the photo via Bluetooth to the machine and it was all very simple, however when the photo printed somehow it was cropped so the top of my head was missing and also some of the bottom of the photo! Does anyone know why this has happened? Thank you for your help
