Click on it, and you will see a drop-down menu at the top of the screen, and from there, select the Lock Screen option.

Then press the “From Gallery” option located at the bottom left corner of the screen.

Now, you will see an interface from where you can choose multiple images, and this is pretty standard.

You should not have any challenge performing this task.

Once you view the images closely, you will notice small checkbox in the upper left corner of the image which you have to select.

After picking different images, all the selected images would be used in making a new wallpaper on your lock screen.

Make sure you do not use any private image which will be shown on your lock screen because sometimes your phone will be used or viewed by other people and you might want to refrain from using personal pictures.

After choosing the pictures, you will be asked to choose the size of your wallpaper and you have to do all the panning and zooming.

This step would be different for other phones as they all have different size and dimensions of the screen.

Some of the images may get cut and won’t be shown fully.
So choose the dimensions carefully.

When you get to this stage, tap the Set as Wallpaper button located at the bottom of the screen.

After carrying out all the steps mentioned above, once you lock your phone, you will be able to see all the images which you have chosen from the gallery and it’s really a fantastic feature provided by Samsung.

Note that only Samsung Galaxy devices have this feature. The non-Galaxy offerings do not have it.


Now you can add a photo to any of your contacts and even do more, like copy contacts from your SIM to your Samsung Galaxy phone.

Additionally, you can set wallpaper on lock screen using multiples photos on your phone.
