    I want to change my lock screen image to one of my own. However, I am having great difficulty doing so. I have followed all the advice given previously, but none of it works.

    I have gone into Setting/Display/Wallpaper/Lock Screen/ and tried to change the image there. Unfortunately, the Only options I get are the stock Samsung images. There is no way to choose another image. There is no Gallery option. I have tried to change the wallpaper by pressing on an empty part of a screen. This time I get the choice between Lice Wallpapers and the stock Samsung screens. Again, no Gallery option is offered.

    I do have ADW Launcher Theme and a Live wallpaper running. Would this make a difference? I want to keep the Live Wallpaper on the screens and have a different, static image on my Lock screen. Is this even possible? Why am I not getting any Gallery option as everyone else seems to be? I use X-Plore to choose images and navigate around my phones folder system.

    This is really annoying.

    My phone is a Rooted Samsung Galaxy S3 (O2 - UK). It is running Jelly Bean 4.1.2.

    Why stop at just changing the Wallpaper on your Lockscreen?
    I'd recommend WidgetLocker to change pretty much everything on your Lockscreen--> https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...w.widgetlocker

    First of all, thanks for taking the time to reply to my post.

    I already use Widget Locker. However, when I come out of the Widget Locker screen, I still have the screen in which I need to enter my password. It is on this screen I wish to put the wallpaper.

    That's odd, my S3 has "Gallery" as an option setting the Lockscreen image following your steps.

    I'm not rooted though & running 4.1 1.

    Perhaps find the folder Samsung's are in and copy the one you want to that folder.

    Did you try locating the folder Samsung puts them in?
    Also, your Status Bar looks like one heck of a cluttered mess (IMO), LoL. Might be worth checking out "StatusBar+"--> https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...android.wp7bar

    Great advice on the Status Bar app. Installed it, love it.

    As for the Gallery, issue. I can't find where the Samsung images are kept. Would it be possible to have uninstalled the Gallery app? I used Titanium to uninstall all the apps I didn't want a few weeks ago.
