I used an iPad some years ago and it had an option to choose different images in portrait and landscape mode. I am on a Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 with Cyanognmod and I also use a OnePlus 2. I am using Nova lauchner.

My question is:

Is it possible to set different images for portrait and landscape orientation? (It is okay to use different apps than Nova Launcher)

I hope this is the right StackExchange sub"forum" for this question.

Thanks for answering,

  • Installed CM version? – Firelord Jan 13 '16 at 20:33

You can use an app here.


Setup a flow like this:

Location of relevant blocks:

  • Interface → Screen Orientation?
  • Settings → Wallpaper image set

After setting it up, make sure to install the permission it asks for - set wallpaper.

This worked in my COS12 and PA build of Android 5.1 but somehow failed in Android 5.1 nightly build of Vanir ROM.


Try the trial version, before buying from Play Store.

  • Profile: State → Display → Display Orientation →Portrait

  • Task: (Actions): Display → Set Wallpaper → fill the details

  • For landscape orientation, you can either add an exit task by long pressing the task entry next to linked profile under Profiles tab and choosing "Add exit task", or setup a new profile for landscape orientation and create a new task for it.

    For latter approach, make sure to disable Restore Settings for both the profiles. A profile's properties can be accessed by long-pressing the profile and tapping the settings icon.

Tasker worked in both Android 5.0 and 5.1 ROMs installed in my device.


It can be done easily. Open an image you want to set as wallpaper in gallery In menu->set picture as ->Nova wallpaper In the crop screen choose crop icon (2nd icon left of bottom) choose whatever rotation you want. It will work.
