Lock Pic assembles pictures from different online photo galleries like your device photos, Bing, Flickr, Bing Image of the Day, NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day, and many more. You can change the photo uodate timing from 30 mins, 1 hour, 2 hours, 12 hours, once per day. Lock Pic can blur an image from the lockscreen, add overlay behind text on Lockscreen or even blur the overlay.

If you are using Bing for your lock screen images, you can specify a specific search like ‘blue wallpaper’. It will navigate through photos from the Photos hub option.
