Setting wallpaper on iPhone

Pic-a-POD saves selected pics to your Camera Roll, but Apple does not allow third-party apps to set the wallpaper, so here is how to do that once Pic-a-POD has saved the pic you want to use.

Method 1 – Settings

  • Open Settings and tap “Wallpaper”.
  • You will see 2 small images showing the current Lock Screen & Home Screen wallpapers for your iPhone.
  • Tap this section and in the list that appears, tap “Camera Roll” which should be 2nd from the top. If “Camera Roll” does not appear, it means that you have not saved any pics yet.
  • Tap the thumbnail for the pic you want to use from the Camera Roll pics – if you have just saved it, it will be at the end of the displayed thumbnails.
  • The pic will be displayed full screen and you can pinch, zoom & drag to position it the way you like. The shading shows the area that will be visible on the Lock Screen.
  • Tap “Set” and then choose one of the buttons to set the Lock Screen, Home Screen or both.
  • If you want to set the other of these screens to a different pic, tap a different thumbnail to repeat the process.

Method 2 –  Photos

  • Open your Photos app.
  • If the title bar does not say “Albums” keep tapping the back button at the top left until it does.
  • When the albums appear, tap “Camera Roll” and you will see a set of thumbnails, including those saved by Pic-a-POD. If “Camera Roll” does not appear, it means that you have not saved any pics yet.
  • Scroll to the end to see newly added pics and tap a thumbnail to see it full screen.
  • If the buttons at the top and bottom are not visible, tap anywhere in the pic to make them appear.
  • Tap the action button at the bottom left – this is the one that looks like a box with an arrow coming out.
  • From the menu that appears, select “Use as Wallpaper”.
  • The pic will be displayed full screen and you can pinch, zoom & drag to position it the way you like. The shading shows the area that will be visible on the Lock Screen.
  • Tap “Set” and then choose one of the buttons to set the Lock Screen, Home Screen or both.
  • If you want to set one of these screens to a different pic, tap “Camera Roll” in the top left to get back to the thumbnails, then select a different thumbnail to repeat the process.
