Default Black wallpaper

If i want to choose a custom wallpaper that i've downloaded from te internet and i choose the pic as background, it doesnt show the background that i choose but its a black background. It only shows the wallpaper that are stock installed.

How can i fix this?

Well:

- long press home screen
- select wallpapers
- far left icon select pick image
- select image from where you saved it

The difference between the strong and weak willed is that the weak traverse with wounds covered up and hide when attacked, while the strong stride on with open hands and tears. Wounds bared open, and will continue to go on, even when broken at their core

That doesn't work. I've run into this problem were I can't set a wallpaper. Neither going to photos or gallery and selecting it, or long pressing the home screen doesn't work. It just stays black.
I fixed it, I think, by going into the theme engine and choosing another theme, and making sure that the wallpaper box is checked. That got it working for me.
