background display issues

Hi, have searched the threads and cant find a similar issue so here goes...

I have just got a new samsung nc10 netbook with XP and when I go to set a picture as the desktop background it stretches it to fit... fine... but if you dont want everyone looking wide you set it to centre but when I do that it zooms right in on the picture instead of displaying it in its original size on the screen.... why is this? is it because the picture from the camera is massive or is this an XP bug??
