    I just got a galaxy s7. I am trying to use images of galaxies from the web as wall paper. I figured out how to save them, but can not figure out how to move them to make them my wall paper. I downloaded a couple of images that said they were wallpaper and downloaded ok.

    When i saved them, it said saved to google in the lower left side. I checked Google pictures and there was nothing there.

    Any ideas?

    If you have saved the image it should appear in your photo gallery, probably under downloads. Select the image to open it and there should be a menu,possible three vertical dots. In that menu should be option to either "use as" or "set as" which ever launcher you are using wallpaper.
    This is what it looks like on Nexus 9

    If you cannot find the images in your gallery app, check the file explorer app and look in downloads.

    "Covert"?? as in the CIA ?? :rolleyes:

    I suspect that is a typo and you meant "Convert" an image to Wallpaper. :)
