Samsung Galaxy S4: How to Change Lock Screen Wallpaper in Android 5.0.1 Lollipop

By default, lock screen is designed to secure your phone from unauthorized access or other unwanted activities(e.g: pocket dialing, opening an app, etc). But, if needed, you can personalize your lock screen by changing its background image(also called wallpaper). You can set the default wallpapers, any picture stored in your phone, or recommended destinations from Travel wallpaper as your lock screen wallpaper.
