While some Android phones only allow you to display notifications on the lockscreen, Samsung allows you to show off your favorite photo on the Galaxy S9 and S9+. Here’s how…

Steps to setting an image on the always-on display

  1. Find your image
  2. Set the image

1. Find your image

The best photos for your phone’s lockscreen is something simple and clean. While you can theoretically show off anything on your device, something with two contrasting colors looks best when shown in black and white.

2. Set the image

Head into your Galaxy S9 or S9’s settings menu by pulling down the notification tray and tapping on the gear icon. Scroll down and locate Lock Screen and Security. Lastly, select Clock and Face Widgets.

From there, you can scroll through the different images on your handset and select which one you want on your lockscreen. You might have to crop it a bit to fit correctly.

Once set, you can turn off your Galaxy S9 or S9+ and see the selected image on your lockscreen.
