Selecting a wallpaper for your device can definitely take some time, especially if you’re looking for something a little more unique or different than the default backgrounds.
Obviously, if you’re a guinea pig lover, you’re probably after a wallpaper that involves piggies.
Unfortunately, your PC’s or phone’s default background options probably don’t include this small animal.
Whenever I choose a new image for my PC or phone, it can take me upwards of an hour before I make my decision.
Either I’m going through thousands of pictures of my own guinea pigs or those from other sites.
It’s Hard To Pick Just One Wallpaper
There are so many adorable images of piggies out there that it can be difficult to settle on a choice.
So, to help you select the cutest guinea pig wallpapers for your device, I’ve compiled a list of some of the images I always go back to whenever I fancy a screensaver change.
I’ll also be explaining how to download and set a guinea pig wallpaper to your device if you’re a bit uncertain.
How to Download Wallpapers
Downloading a guinea pig wallpaper to your PC or smartphone is a simple process that shouldn’t take you very long.
First, go to your preferred search engine and enter in your desired search term, for example “funny guinea pig wallpapers”. I personally use Google, but any search engine will do.
If you want your wallpaper to be a specific size or resolution, make sure you add it to your search term, such as “guinea pig wallpaper 1920 x 1080”. Once you’ve finished entering in your term, search for results.
You can use the Images tab to find wallpapers or you can go through websites to look for the sort of wallpaper/picture you’re looking for.
Bear in mind that there’s a risk from downloading wallpapers from unknown sites or ones with a low reputation.
If you’re unsure of a site’s trustworthiness, try looking up reviews so you can see if there are any complaints.
If downloading an image for PC, I’d recommend using antivirus software and setting it to scan downloads to be extra safe.
Once you’ve found a wallpaper you like, save it to your phone or PC. On PC, right-click the image and choose “Save image as…”
Enter a name for the image and send the file to wherever you can easily find it like your Pictures folder.
Saving Images on a Mac
This process is the same for Mac computers, except double tap the trackpad to activate a right click.
If you’re using a mouse, simply press the Control button on your keyboard.
On an iPhone or Android, tap and hold the image and wait for the Share button to pop up. Then tap “Save Image” to send the picture to your camera roll.
How to Set Image as Wallpaper
Now that you’ve downloaded a wallpaper for your PC or phone, you’re probably wondering how to set it as a wallpaper.
Some web browsers like Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer allow you to set an image as a background without downloading it first.
If you’re using a web browser that supports this ability, you can simply right-click on the picture and choose “Set image as background” from the drop-down menu.
Don’t worry if your web browser doesn’t give you this option, simply follow the steps above to download the image you want to use as your wallpaper.
If you’re already done this, then read below to find out how to get your wallpaper set up for your device!
Once you’ve saved your wallpaper, click on the Start button and either search for the file name directly or click on Pictures.
If doing the latter, look for your wallpaper in whichever folder you sent it to.
Once you’ve located your wallpaper, right-click on it and select “Set as background” from the drop-down menu. Welcome to your new wallpaper!
If you want to tweak some settings with your background image, you can do this via Personalization in your PC settings.
This allows you to fill, stretch, fit, tile, or center the image to better fit your screen.
To set an image as a wallpaper on your iPhone or Android, simply go into your camera roll and tap on your desired picture.
Click on the Share button and tap on select “Use as background”.
That’s it, you’re all set!
To set an image as your wallpaper on a Mac computer, click on the Finder window on your desktop.
Locate the image you want to use and right-click (or control-click) on it to bring up a drop-down menu.
Select “Set Desktop Picture” and then take a moment to enjoy your new wallpaper!

Now that you know how to set an image as your background on your computer or smartphone, all that’s left to do is find a wallpaper!
If you’re like me and can’t get enough of guinea pigs, then the most obvious wallpaper choice for your PC or phone is this adorable rodent.
I’ll admit, my guinea pigs, Jake and Finn, are my wallpapers for both my PC and phone.
Brightens Up My Day
Even when I’m having the worst day, logging onto my PC or phone and being greeted with the cutest picture of my piggies never fails to make me smile.
Better yet, seeing them on my screen and in reality (normally getting into mischief!) makes those bad days a little better.
But, if you don’t have guinea pigs or don’t have a great picture of them (mine rarely stand still for an image), here are some guinea pigs wallpapers that you could use as a sure way to increase the cuteness of your phone or computer!
