    Hi ziffos,

    in the photo gallery click on the photo you want to use, to enlarge it, then click on the arrow top right corner, it should say use as wallpaper, or in the settings you click on lighting and backgrounds, and all the photos in your gallery will show.

    You can do it from the image in iPhoto by tapping the symbol in the top right corner.

    Sorry but again you misunderstand.

    I am asking for the solution for when I am using the iPhoto app and NOT repeat NOT when I am using the Photo app?
    The iPhoto app is purchased from the App Store and is part of the iWork set of apps.
    If I follow your instructions then in the top right of the screen when viewing a photo is an Edit button and NOT the little arrow in a box pointing to the right.
    Further towards the centre of the screen is the little arrow in a box pointing to the right HOWEVER there is NO OPTION to "set as".

    As far as I can see, you need to use the iPhoto option camera roll and then go to photos to set your screens. This option is under the curved arrow. Extra steps, I know, but your iPhoto edited photos can be used for screens.

    Thank you - this answer will now allow me to use my edited photos as wallpapers.

    Another question occurs to me however and that is : how do I delete edited photos that I do not like? Not the originals but the edited ones that I have perhaps made a mess of - how do I get rid of them?

    Well, you really made me work. Choose the album of edited photos. Choose the photo to eliminate. Choose edit. Now there will be an x in the bottom line. Tap it once and tap the photo once. It looks like nothing happened. Swipe the photo off the screen and it disappears! (I hope I described this correctly.) And I'm glad you asked because I had not played with iPhoto in a while and I had not figured this out before.

    Again I thank you very much for your help - works perfectly - and I am sorry to get you to work so hard for me but perhaps my "signature" will describe my difficulty!!

    Wouldn't it be nice if they had easy, clear instructions?
