You can set an image as your desktop background from the Desktop & Screen Saver area of of the System Preferences pane, using either images provided by Apple or one of your own images. However, if you are browsing the Web and come across an awesome photo that you would like to set as your background picture for your personal use, you can add it with just a click of your mouse.
In Safari, load the image you want to use, right-click the image and select “Use Image as Desktop Picture” from the pop-up menu.
If you are using Firefox, right-click the image and select “Set as Desktop Background”. At the time of this writing, the Google Chrome browser does not provide any options to save an image as a desktop background; but you can always save the image to your computer and then add it via the System Preferences pane.
