After installing the tweak, a new section will appear in the Settings with the available options:

Here you can:

  • Enable and disable the tweak.
  • Choose where the wallpaper will be installed:
    • Slider @ 1 = lock screen only;
    • Slider @ 2 = only home screen;
    • Slider @ 3 = both screens.
  • Select a wallpaper file.
  • Activate Dark Mode for folders and dock.
  • Hide the background of the dock.
  • Hide folder background.

Under the section with a file selection for wallpaper there is a button Apply Wallpaperthat needs to be pressed every time after installing new wallpapers. You can also use the button Respring to apply the changes.

The developer also added customization of folders and dock so you can adjust them to fit your wallpaper. For example, with dark wallpaper dark folders and a dock will look better.

It is worth noting that animated wallpapers will be faster to charge on your device. Although the tweak has been optimized, the battery will still run down faster.

If you want to install the MotionPicture tweak,You can download it from the Dev4i YouRepo repository in Cydia. Tweak supports iOS 11 jailbroken devices and may conflict with other tweaks related to wallpaper.
