    Angry I can't change my wallpaper

    So, when I first got my HTC M8, I had no problem changing the wallpaper. It let me change the wallpaper from the default screen to one of my own pictures. But now, every time I try to change it to another picture it says on the home screen "couldn't load image as wallpaper." This happens no matter what picture I choose. It says that or it doesn't even let me select anything.

    Please help!

    Reboot your phone and try again.

    That would mean wiping everything off my phone and pretty much going back to manufacturer setting, right?

    No no just turn it of and back on. And make sure fastboot isn't on in the battery manager settings.

    Does it not work with one of the HTC wallpapers either?

    No, it works with the all the HTC wallpapers and pictures i got from the internet. Just not when I try to use one of the pictures I took with my camera.

    I would say to delete the launchers data and possibly get rid of any bug that's stopping that.
    But that would mean your whole home screen will be changed back to how it was from the beginning.

    Would that only affect my home screen or would it set my phone back to how I got it?

    Just your home screen. You'll have all your asps and pictures and everything like that. It'll just reset your home screen.

    I can't guarantee that'll work but I think that'd be the next thing to do.

    If you want to, this is how:
    Go to settings>apps>all>HTC blinkfeed>clear data

    I also wonder if your photos might somehow have incorrect attributes for Wallpaper. Make sure they're being taken at the higest 4MP resolution?
