trouble changing lock screen wallpaper

my issue is pretty much as stated, I'm trying to change my lock screen wallpaper.

my phone is one of those budget types l acquired off Amazon, a Blackview A8, and to be quite honest the original launcher was dire as it had no app draw so everything just went on the home screen, suffice to say l installed a much tidier launcher (action launcher) but l digress.

I originally did change my lock screen and home screen wallpapers, but for the life of me l cannot remember how l changed the lock screen wallpaper.

So far I've tried going through the security settings (I currently use swipe to unlock but no wallpaper settings present in that area), I've also visited display settings but I only get the option to set my home screen, in addition I also tried Google Photos and the Gallery "set as" which only seem to set the home screen and finally I tried long pressing on the home screen but again no no options offered to set the lock screen wallpaper, essentially all lead me to the choice of Google Photos or the Gallery which only change my home screen.

The settings are exactly the same with both launchers so I'm confused as to how I originally managed to set my lock screen wallpaper, however I'm in need of some way to change it asap as somehow it was changed while partying over new year to something less than desirable (lets just say boobs lol which would be fine except I also use this phone for work).

Any help or even an app to make changing my wallpapers easier would be greatly appreciated (I don't need something that slide shows wallpapers just something to set wallpapers to the lock screen that wont spam me with ads).
