can't set wallpaper pics without cropping anymore.

So I bought my Xperia Z3 last week and I was able to set any picture as wallpaper without cropping it, but then I had to reset my phone to factory settings and since then I haven't been able to do it again, I have to crop the picture yes or yes, and this is very frustrating.
Does anyone know what happened?

Perhaps the photos were the size needed but out of all my Xperias you have to crop the pictures

Not really, because I was able to use any picture size and there was no need to crop. I don't know what did I move or what happened.

Are you using a different home launcher?

Nope, it's the regular Xperia home, the one that scrolls with the picture. It's very weird, because like I said I was able to use any picture and it would adapt it so I didn't have to crop it, but since I had to reset my phone, that was gone, and yes, all updates were installed before this.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't recall not having to crop the picture to use it as a wallpaper

I remember having to crop in the past, not sure on what circumstances this was different.

I've always had the crop options appear
