2. In the left column, tap Brightness & Wallpaper.

3. In the right column, tap the Wallpaper section.

4. Choose whether to use the included Wallpaper images collection, or to use your own album.

5. Select the desired image.

6. In the status bar, select Set Lock Screen, Set Home Screen, or Set Both to use the selected image as the desired background.

Method Two: Using Photos

1. Tap Photos on the Home Screen.

2. Select the desired album.

3. Select the desired image.

4. Tap the Options icon.

5. Select Use as Wallpaper.

6. In the status bar, select Set Lock Screen, Set Home Screen, or Set Both to use the selected image as the desired background.
