Lock screen wallpaper Android – KitKat 4.4.2/4.4.4

I’ve been reading a lot of “support sites” with regards to “helping” users who are using Android 4.4.2/4.4.4 KitKat. I see a lot of users are trying to change their lock screen image.

I even read one response that said “Your wallpaper should be the same regardless of whether you’re on the lockscreen or not — it’s not an iPhone ;)”

No it’s not an iPhone, but still Android has had the ability to change Home & Lock screen wallpapers from the very start. Now if you’re an Android user trying to change or remove a lock screen wallpaper image. Here’s what you need to know.

Go to SettingsThemes… down the bottom you will find Lock screen wallpapers.

From here you can either, clear the wallpaper you currently have, or change it to something else. If you want to change to a new wallpaper, choose ‘Pick image‘. Now you have the option from getting the picture you want from Google Drive, through your file manager, or Gallery. Simply touch the the three horizontal lines on the top left of the screen. It will change to ‘Open From’. Then select the picture and tap set lock screen wallpaper at the top of the screen.
