The Kindle Fire doesn't have any wallpaper setting options. But you can set your own wallpaper indeed!
I find the trick from this article:
Not like any wallpaper apps which don't work actually, this method reall works.

Keep in mind that the 'trick' that eddiehong is suggesting requires that you first ROOT your Kindle. ROOTing your Kindle is a modification that should not be taken lightly. The Amazon Kindle uses a modified and locked down version of the Android operating system. That is why you can't go in and change the wallpaper, rearrange where things are put on the screen, change or delete the carousel, install apps from Google Play, etc. ROOTing the Kindle allows you to have ROOT access or Main or System level access to files that you normally can't get to on your Kindle. If you mess something up while ROOTing your Kindle you CAN render it completely useless. If you ROOT your Kindle it is something that can void your warranty. Also, once ROOTed many Kindles have been known to switch back to normal function after one of firmware updates that Amazon pushes out to the Kindle when they want to make changes to the options. This means that you have to ROOT the Kindle all over again.

I'm not saying you shouldn't ROOT your Kindle but you should know some of the facts and what's involved before you consider doing it.

I do not understand the big deal about the wallpaper on the fire. You see it for about 10 seconds and then it is gone.

I don't either. People sure get bunged up about it, though. I guess it's because they're used to setting pictures on their phones and computers. I pick one picture on my phone and it stays like that until it dies and I get a new one.

I agree. I use my Kindle Fire... I don't sit around gazing at the lock screen.
