Quick Guide: How to create a transparent lockscreen

Thanks to the great work done by dannahan in our Windows Phone forums, we bring you the transparent lockscreen tutorial.

Transparent homescreen image

  • Create an image with a transparent background in the image editor of your choice. Save it with transparency as a .PNG file.
  • Email that file to the account you have on your Windows Phone.
  • Open the email, tap the ellipses (…) and select “Use as wallpaper”

Dannahan offers the following suggestions for best results:

  • Any transparencies in the image will be black until the lockscreen is touched or moved up.
  • Will not work on password protected lockscreens.
  • A dark theme is preferable.
