If you are coming from a computer background that is mostly focused on Windows computers, then you are likely used to being able to customize most of the elements of your screen. The options available on the iPad are not as numerous as they would be on a Windows 7 computer, but you will find that many of the things you want to personalize can be done. One customizable option is the wallpaper, or background, shown behind the app icons. You can choose one of the pictures on you camera roll and set it as your iPad wallpaper using the tutorial below.
