6 Android apps that let you make custom wallpapers
While the selection of wallpapers that are available for Android is so vast that we wouldn’t be wrong in calling it endless, sometimes you want to have a wallpaper that’s exclusively yours - perhaps a photo of your significant other, of your kid(s), of your pet(s), or the photo of a landscape that you’re truly proud of. Luckily, Android is the most customizable OS to ever grace a smartphone or tablet, so there are plenty of applications that let you make your own wallpapers. 

Of course, you can always set your photos as wallpapers from your phone’s default gallery app, but the applications that we’re presenting below provide more options - thus a higher level of personalization.

Do you often make custom wallpapers for your Android phone or tablet? Let us know in the comments!

I use Pixlr Express more than anything.
And Photoshop of course.

When I need a new wallpaper I just use "Tapet - Wallpapers Reinvented". It is very simple to randomly make a wallpaper. They are clean, simple and minimalist.

Not exactly a "wallpaper maker" but I have found an even better Live Wallpaper that I like, and it's free with no hidden features/paywall. It is called Photo Wall FX on the play store. You can choose your own photos and create custom sets, apply filters and my favorite - DIM settings! I can't believe how many apps don't provide this, which annoys the hell out of me as I can't read my app names if the wallpaper is TOO BRIGHT.

The setting page is a bit outdated in design, but how often do you need to go into the settings seriously. They have lots of options to play with however, kind of fun to experiment with the filters and layouts.

If you like an animated collage with your own photos, you can download it here: goo(dot)gl/stIHUI (both are capital "i"s; sorry, play store links are too long)
