From the dashboard go to Settings Themes Select Theme Custom Select Image USB Storage Device.

Once the software update goes live, you will be able to finally change your PS4 Wallpaper with an image from a USB stick, and will be able to do the same to customize a Team or tournament page. To set your logo and background, head over to Events Teams select your team Edit Team Profile. The update also includes a new PS Plus tab that includes all the premium content from PS Plus, as well as a new Hide App functionality that lets you hide certain apps and games from the Library. This PS4 tab lists all the apps installed on the console, and the tab with your name and avatar lists all the apps you bought with your PSN ID.

Another section of the library allows you to see what games you now own through PlayStation Plus, keeping in mind that you'll lose access to said games should your subscription lapse. For those with a lapsed PS Plus subscription, the titles still appear, but carry an icon showing they are locked until the user re-subscribes.

Hiding apps: This convenience allows the user to disappear certain apps they won't be using again, reducing menu clutter; think betas, trials or other demos.
