How do you set pictures as wallpaper?

I've disabled touchflo today just to see how it goes. I can't select any of the pictures on my phone to use as the background. It only gives me the option of selecting album art. Can someone tell me how I can do this? I always click thanks!

Re: How do you set pictures as wallpaper?

If you have disabled touchflo, go to start-> settings -> today. There you can change themes, and at the bottom check the "Use this image as background" box and it will let you browse to your photos/pics.

Yeah, I've tried this but the pictures aren't showing up. I can see the pictures when I go to albums or camera & pictures, but when I select all folders and "pictures" as the file type, I only see my album art.

Sorry, I'm a little slow. I can find the pics just fine using file explorer. But when I click the browse button on the settings screen, I can't find the pics. You're saying if I simply create a separate folder for my pics, it will then show up?
