    This is where you show off, brag, make others jealous and share tips and how to's for your Start Screen and Lock Screen layouts.

    To take a screenshot quickly press the Volume Up & Power buttons at the same time. Screenshots have their own folder inside the Photos App,

    Get your layout pimped and post the results right here...

    My phone says 'Couldn't take screenshot' when I press volume up and power buttons. Maybe we are all having this issue.

    I've had this on several WP's on occasion. I don't know if there is an easier solution, but I shut down, then turn it back on, and it's good.

    I had that happen on my 1020 a few times and each time that message popped up, the screenshot still saved. So check your photos to see if the screenshot is there.

    I've played around for just a bit with a number of photos and settings, and tbh, I prefer it with no photo. There is so much data being displayed in the tiles, and with all the transparancies, putting a photo back there just seems to make everything look too busy for me.

    However, I do like a nice lockscreen photo :)

    Possibly a nice abstract on the Start?

    When I do my wallpapers on phone I usually ask Cortana 2 things and one of them color, then scan the photo results for something to grab...

    Red clouds, golden splash, purple mountains... You get the idea.

    FWIW 8.1 is much the same. Too detailed a pic just gets chopped by all the tile activity. Broad strokes seem to be key.

    Otherwise you would want many blank areas for a busy background to show clear, then you have to scroll down to get to most of your apps. That is another school some favor.

    Nice! I like your start screen wallpaper, very minimalist.

    I've always gone simple. Nothing too busy in terms of a photo background on the Home Screen. I still just use the basic color.

    But here are my Lock and Home Screens.

    Save any photo/image to your phone and then browse for it as you have for the ones you've found. I emailed 1020 images to my 950 on day 1 to use for my lock and start screens.

    My first pass setup for start & lock screen (credit James Hance for the lockscreen art, he's my favorite :)
    Start screen is a tad busy, but I know where everything is. Might go back to 3 tiles wide, but this is growing on me.
