How do I use your wallpapers on my iPhone?

There are a couple of ways to make use of our cool wallpapers on your iPhone. The easiest way is to surf to the image on the iPhone (with firmware 2.0 or later) and press and hold the image. You’ll then see a pop-up menu that will allow you to save the image to your photos library. Set as wallpaper and you’re done.

If you’re looking to save the wallpapers from your Mac or PC, here are the steps you’ll need:

  1. Right-click or control-click on the image you want to use.
  2. Select “Save as…” and save the image to your hard drive.
    • Mac users can either save the image to a folder or add it to their iPhoto library.
    • PC users will want to save the wallpaper into their “My Pictures” folder.

You can then sync the iPhone with photos in iPhoto 4.0.3 or later on a Mac, or Photoshop Album 2.0 or later or Photoshop Elements 3.0 or later on a PC. Or you can sync with any folder on your computer that contains images. Connect the iPhone to your computer and do the following:

  1. Launch iTunes then click the Photos tab and select “Sync photos from:”
  2. From the pop-up menu, do one of the following:
    • If your using a Mac, choose iPhoto or your Pictures folder.
    • If you’re using a PC, choose Photoshop Album, Photoshop Elements, or your My Pictures folder.
  3. Choose Folder, then choose any folder on your computer that has images.
  4. Choose “All photos,” or choose “Selected folders” or “Selected albums” and choose the folders or albums you want to sync.
  5. Navigate to the Settings application on your iPhone, and choose the appropriate group of photos where you saved the wallpaper, then tap the image and set as wallpaper.

That’s it, you should see your custom wallpaper on the iPhone’s start-up screen as well as for incoming calls that do not have a contact assigned to them.
