    If you want to keep a pic as wallpaper then just long tap on the pic in the options it would be written sat as.. then choose
    1)contact photo
    2)home screen wallpaper
    3)lock screen wallpaper

    You can choose anyone you like

    Plus you can add directly by going into the contacts or by long pressing on the screen and choosing wallpapers and then follow the same procedure
