When I teach iPad CLEs and give “iPad for Lawyers” demonstrations, participants often ask where they can find the cool home screen and lock screen wallpaper that happens to be on my iPad that particular day. First, I explain that any photograph in your iPad or iPhone photo or camera roll files can be used as iPad wallpaper.
<—–Simply select the photo, and select the box and arrow icon
<— Then select “Use as wallpaper.”
<— At the top of the screen you will see the choices “Set Lock Screen” or “Set Home Screen” – make your choice.
Voila– you have customized your wallpaper. In this case, the lock screen.
Now to answer the question — “where to get the coolest wallpaper?” I use the “Pimp My Screen” (App Store .99) [watch out for lesser "pimp my . . ." copy cat apps].
“Pimp My Screen” was one of the most popular apps for 2011. It contains a wide variety of lock shelf and home screen wallpaper choices. These are frequently updated and there are always a few seasonal picks. Several examples of screens are below. Rest assured there are screens for every taste. ENJOY!
