Hi I'm Jay Goldman and welcome back to the Blackberry tips and tricks series. Today we’re going to take a look at using the camera in your Blackberry to take a new wallpaper background for your home screen. We’ll start in the media application which gives you access to all the different t types of multimedia supported by the device.
In this case we’re looking for pictures and we can either browse through previously taken photographs or we can activate the camera by selecting “Camera”. The camera’s on the back of the Blackberry, so point it at the thing you want to take the picture of, in this case the dude from the big Lavasky and use the camera icon to actually snap your photo.
Blackberry will show you the photograph as it was taken so you can decide if you’re happy with it and you can use the red X to cancel out of here if you’d like to take it again. You can also use the cropping tool to make changes to it or the green folder icon if you’d like to save it. I’m going to save this with a different name so a box space over what was previously there, and then I will type, “Dude” so we can save it with the appropriate name. That will now save this photograph in my saved images. So I can back out of the camera, go into my all pictures, and see my photograph of the dude.
Use the Blackberry menu item to open the menu and you’ll see a bunch of different options that you have here, including send as email, send using Bluetooth, set as the caller ID for one of the contacts in your address book, or set as home screen image. Picking the “set as home screen image” will set this as the home screen for the Blackberry. So if I use the hang up key to back out of this, we’ll see it now, present behind my menu items on the home screen.
Thanks for watching the Blackberry tips and tricks Series, stay tuned for more.
