Change the Photo app background image?


Right now when I launch the photos app in Win8 I see my photo folders and in the background there is an image of a butterfly. Is it possible to change that background image? Ideally it would cycle through my own images just as the live tile does. Am I missing the setting?

You can change the background image if you have installed the new Windows 8 Release Preview.

1. Open the Photos App.
2. Select the image you want to set as the background to view it full screen.
3. Right click the image to display the toolbar at the bottom of the screen.
4. On the left end of the toolbar select the Set As icon.
5. Click the App Background option.
There is no option to cycle through different pictures for the app background.
