In photoshop, save the image as a BMP file.

One you have it saved, you can right click on your desktop and choose properties.

The display properties show pop up and you can select the BMP from there.

Hope this helps,
Craig

Take your Photoshop image, load it into any graphics program that
will allow you to "Save As" a .bmp(bitmap). Once you`ve converted
the image to a .bmp, you will then be able to right-click on it,
and choose "Set as background image"(wallpaper)and Windows will
then use that as your background image. You cannot use a .gif,
jpg, jpeg, .pdd,ect,ect file-format image as wallpaper until
you convert it to a bitmap(.bmp)Most(though certainly not all) graphics programs will allow you to take an image you`ve loaded,
and convert it to a bitmap by choosing the "Save As" command
and then choosing ".bmp" from the menu of available file-format
extensions. By "Saving As" and choosing .bmp you are, in effect,
converting the image to a bitmap, which is what you will need it
to be if you want to use it as youe desktop wallpaper(background)
