How to add wallpaper to be accessable for later use

Asked by Dick Metzger

I have visited sites where I can view different selections of wallpaper that I can click on the one I like and have it installed immediately to the desktop. I would like to add some other choices shown to be held in reserve for later use if I so choose.
How do I send them to the proper place to be accessible later on? I tried saving some to the desktop but that is not a good location. I'd like to be able to right click on the current desktop and then be able to select them from the ones shown there.
Any help on this matter will be very much appreciated! Thanks to ALL! Richard

Have you tried: Right click on desktop, change background, and "Add" button?

Hi :)

Yes drag those pictures from your desktop into the Pictures folder. The links that Mario showed automatically start in the the Pictures folder so it makes a lot of sense. Form the top taskbar/panel click on

Places - Pictures

to open the file-browser at the right folder and then just drag the pictures into there ;) lol
Good luck and regards from
