    Hi all. Just got the SGS4 on AT&T, switching from iPhone 4. Of course I love Android, but I'm a n00b. One of the things I'm not able to figure out is how to set the Lock Screen wallpaper from a Nova Launcher theme.

    Going to Settings > My Device > Display > Wallpaper > Home Screen, I can see Gallery, Live Wallpapers, Nova Wallpaper, Photos, and Wallpapers as options, so I'm able to set the Home Screen Wallpaper from my Nova theme.

    However, going to Settings > My Device > Display > Wallpaper > Lock Screen gives me only Gallery, Wallpaper, and something called "Travel Wallpaper", and no option to set the wallpaper from the Nova Theme.

    Has anyone found a way to do this? Perhaps from within Nova Settings or the theme itself? Is there a way within Nova to export Theme assets, so I can save the wallpapers externally or something?

    I seriously would like to know this as well. I can't figure out how to have a separate wallpaper for my lock screen and home screen using nova. Someone please help!

    You can do it if you use a custom screen locker (Like Widget Locker, which is also made by the makers of Nova Launcher )
    ... but I'm not sure how to do it with just Nova and the stock lock screen... :-/

    The only way i've figured to do this - is the long way: disable nova, then set your lockscreen wallpaper.
    Once you have the lockscreen wallpaper you want, re-enable nova.
    If you find a faster work-around, i'll too be interested to learn it.

    Open up the stock Gallery app, find the picture you want as the lock screen wallpaper, press your menu button, scroll down to and tap "Set As", choose lock screen, it will then take you to a screen where you can crop the picture if you want, then click Save and you are done.

    Been looking for this everywhere until recently I updated to Lollipop when the problem was solved. Go to 'Settings'. Select 'Themes'. There will be a small 'wrench' icon on the bottom right of the displayed screen. Click that, scroll down to see options for Lock screen and Display wallpaper. Simple. By the way, Iam using Nova Launcher latest version and it doesnt sem to have this facility anywhere. Nova Developers reading?
