Setting a wallpaper on your Kindle Fire eReader will give a personal touch to your device and will also make your home screen more attractive. Even though Amazon does not provide this feature by default, you can use third-party apps from the Google Play store to customize your display. If you want to choose a picture from your eReader's memory, you should use Kindle Fire - Wallpaper Change. Alternatively, download Autumn Live Wallpapers or Live Wallpaper - Components to choose one of the pre-defined dynamic wallpapers.
