Custom Loading Image

So my app is on the android market and has a custom loading image. I know for sure the image is fine but when I play my game on a phone the custom loading image is cropped from the sides or it zooms in a bit so it cuts off the ends. My setting for the devices is on stretch. Does that have anything to do with it?

Thanks!

    Android publishing has a lot of defects and doesn't works as it should. What i believe most people do is just put a full black image, and make an extra scene in their game to act as a splash screen that after 1 sec switches to the main scene.

    You need to make the change the image to the size of the android screen. I don't know what that is but I'm sure it will be easy to figure out. Use this site to resize your image. It may be stretched a little but it is better than having it cut off. http://www.picresize.com Hope this helps!

    Just make the custom image the same size/aspect ratio of your project within Gamesalad. It should then display as expected.

    My project is having the same issue. It was a problem with my other app that I released over a year ago. Recently, my loading image still zooms but now goes black and displays white text "Loading". I am hesitant to promote my app on Amazon and Google stores because it is extremely unprofessional looking. It is hard to be viewed as a credible company when the user sees unprofessional graphics right when they open the app.
