    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Just wondering if there is a way to adjust the wallpaper orientation,

basically my image is too large to fit on the desktop and i want to scale it down with the appearance settings if possible.

Have you tried Tweaks >> Appearance >> Background >> Adjustment ? There are few options there from the drop down list.

If you haven't install Tweaks, you can install it from the store or from terminal.
Code:
$ sudo apt install gnome-tweak-tool

This is the usual way. However, if none of those settings do what you need, you may have to scale the image instead. I would normally do that with GIMP. If you need help with that, sing out.
