    Hi there! You probably have your grid settings set to a number lower than what you want to put in there, so the launcher will only let you place so many shortcuts/apps on each row/column. To change that to suit your needs go to Nova's settings and find the Desktop preferences (at the top). There, modify the Desktop Grid to your liking.

    Also, you can "squeeze" your home screens icons even more if you enable subgrid and overlap in Nova settings.

    About the picture/video. You can use a file explorer to create a shortcut icon to open that kind of files. If you want to place the image itself you could use a widget creator like Zooper or KWGT.

    Haha, I thought you were asking how to place a picture on your home screen The steps to post a screenshot here will depend on what you are using to access the forums, a browser or any of the apps. See this guide.
