Posted June 24, 2007 by iphone_dude in Apple iPhone

Using and manipulating the pictures on the iPhone allows one to easily integrate and customize their device. This tutorial shows a user how to assign a photo to either a contact or as the device’s wallpaper.


Getting pictures into the iPhone is a snap. You can pull pictures in from your apple or PC when you sync or you can just take pictures with the integrated camera. Either way, the method for using these pictures on your device is the same.

1. Goto the Photos section of your camera. Browse through the albums or camera roll until you find the picture you wish to use.

2. Select the picture so it is displayed full screen.

3. Tap the icon in the lower left corner of the screen. If you don’t see the icon, single tap the picture to display the menus.

4. Here you can select if you want to email the picture, save the picture as a wallpaper, or assign to a contact.

5. If you want to assign to a contact, press that button. The contact list will open and you can select the contact you wish to link to the picture.

6. Select Done to complete the process.
