How to add custom backgrounds to your PS4

If you are like me and we’re one of the lucky few to be selected for the PS4 v4.5 Beta, congratulations as you now have access to custom backgrounds on your PS4. This has been a long awaited feature so let me get right to it:

  1. From the main menu screen select “settings”
  2. Select “Themes”
  3. Select the “Select Theme” option
  4. Scroll down the list of available themes until you see “custom” and select it
  5. Select the “select image” option and scroll to your favorite game and select the image you would like as your background and that it

Enjoy your new wallpaper!
(PS: are you having issues when using external storage on your PS4 running the 4.5 beta? If so let me know in the comments)
