How do I set an image as my PS4 wallpaper?
There are several ways to set any image as your PS4 wallpaper.
The obvious option is to copy all the images you like to a USB drive, group them together in a folder titled IMAGES, then select the ones you want to keep on your PS4 and set them as your wallpaper.
However, there are two methods which are arguably more convenient than this one.
The first method is to use your PS4 Web browser app, find the image you have chosen, display it in full screen by pressing square, and then take a screenshot. This keeps everything in one device and avoids unnecessary work by creating folders etc.
The second method is to transfer pictures to your PS4 through the PlayStation app. For that, you need to download the PS app on your phone and log into your PSN account on it.
Then get the picture you want on your phone, send it to a PSN friend through the PS app and access it on your PS4 in the messages section. You can then select the image to view it in full screen, wait for the information prompt to disappear, and then take a screenshot of that image.
Your photos will be in the All folder and Other screenshots folder of your PS4. While you can use any image, be sure to check out some custom wallpapers on the PlayStation website.
