So after I removed the special offers on the lockscreen, it shows some (around 5 I guess?) stock wallpaper on the lockscreen routinely. I know the wallpaper can be changed in display > wallpaper, but I can't find the place to change the lockscreen wallpaper.

Is there a walk-around to achieve it?

I've got the 6th gen HD 8, but in mine, I browse photos using the Prime Photos app. When I see one I want to use, tap it so it displays full-screen size, then tap the 3 dots (menu) in the upper right corner of the pic. One of the choices is Wallpaper. On my 8 HD, choosing and confirming this will set it as both the lock screen wallpaper and the home screen wallpaper.

Thanks for helping:D. I really appreciate it. I was looking for the content related to "lockscreen wallpaper" and I didn't know that home screen wallpaper & lock screen wallpaper are changed at the same time.

Also, I can confirm that using your method and going to display > wallpaper have the same result.

Totally unnecessary. Dragonfire1024 has demonstrated the way to change internal lockscreen wallpaper in his thread. As far as I know, that's the only way to customize the lockscreen wallpaper in a rotational way without using Amazon's app.

So...

What am i missing here? I've just changed my wallpaper, but my lock screen is still blissfully rotating pics from the folder of stock images that came pre-installed

EDIT found the answer in another thread. I mistakenly used Google Pics to change my wallpaper, not the control panel setting, which doesn't change the lockscreen.

On the other hand, this is a good work around to have different lock screen\wallpaper images.?

Hi there, can you please share the thread you have used for changing lock screen wallpaper? As i was able to change the Home screen wallpaper but not the Lock screen. By the way i am using Fire HD10.

Lock screen

Hi there, can you please share the thread you have used for changing lock screen wallpaper? As i was able to change the Home screen wallpaper but not the Lock screen. By the way i am using Fire HD10.

Sorry, but this was a year ago and I have no idea where I found it. Like I said in my comment though, my solution was to use the control panel. Also, did you pay to bypass the "sponsored" tablet? If not, you will always see the ads and never have control of your lock screen.

Other than that, I really can't offer much help. To be honest, I barely notice what my screen looks like these days. I use my Fire so infrequently I just open it, use it, and shut it off. So I don't know if the interface has changed.

Wish I could be of more help.
