How to change the wallpaper on the iPad
There are two places for wallpaper on the iPad: The Home Screen and the Lock Screen.
For the best looking home and lock screen, iPad Air / iPad Mini 2 wallpaper should be sized to 2048 x 2048 pixels. Since graphics on the iPad rotate to landscape and portrait orientations, the wallpaper must be 2048 x 2048 to provide full coverage of the screen in both directions.

VIA EMAIL: One of the easiest ways to get the image you have selected on to your iPhone/iPad is to email it to yourself, then download it from the mail program on your iPad. Tap and hold to bring up the menu, save the image to your iPad.
VIA WEB: You can also save a photo from a website you visit with the built-in Safari browser on your iPad. Just navigate to the web page with the image, then tap and hold on the picture you want to save. A menu will pop up, then tap the “Save Image” button.
VIA ITUNES: To add an image to your iPad by using iTunes, you will first need to put the image in an existing directory or create a new folder on your computer. After the image has been saved, connect your iPad to your computer and open iTunes. Then navigate to your iPad (under Devices) in iTunes, and click on the Photos tab. Find the directory with your new background images, and sync the photos with your iPad.
