Your iPod Touch Generation 2 will have its own default home screen wallpaper on it. This pre-set background might be rather boring. If you want something more personal, this is how you make your own home screen wallpaper for the iPod Touch Generation 2.

<h2>Turning Photograph Into Wallpaper</h2>

First of all, you should have a number of different wallpaper options in your “Settings” and “Themes” folders for your iPod. You can change these depending upon your mood. You can also add more images if you like.

Another option is to draw your own image in a graphics program. This could be something made in your child’s art class. Then download that image to your iPod. Save it in the image format recognized by your iPod – usually .jpg, .png or .bmp – in your “Themes” or “Photos” folders.

<h3>Change Photograph into Wallpaper</h3>

To use a photograph for the Home Screen Wallpaper on the iPod Touch Generation 2, press the “Photos” button to access your stored pictures. Tap on the “Camera Roll” to view your different images. Now scroll to the photograph you want as your wallpaper. “Select” the photograph.

Now look at the bottom left-hand side of your iPod screen. You will see an icon with an “arrow flowing out of the upper right-hand side of a box.” Select this icon to move to wallpaper options. You will find your Social Media icons here, select the option to “Use as Wallpaper.” Finally, tap on “Set Wallpaper” to turn this photograph into your new iPod Touch Generation 2 home screen wallpaper.

<h2>Visit the iTunes Site</h2>

Another viable option is to visit the Apple iTunes site. This is a great benefit of those who are part of the Apple family of products. You can upgrade your operating system, find cool themes or download the latest application.

One trick to getting the latest operating system for free is the following: Sign into iTunes and plug in your iPod. Before you sync, unplug your iPod Touch Generation 2. Then plug your iPod in again to get the latest version of the operating system. Many times, the Apple site will request if you want to upgrade old versions.

Check out various applications for updating the “Themes” for your wallpaper. One is called “Appsnapp.” You also should be able to download new images for your wallpaper.
