You have to make sure that particular file exists on the users workstations.

You can't just set a picture as a screen saver. Screen Savers are executable files usually. You have to have a valid executable screen saver in order to set it.
You can, however, set the desktop wallpaper and not allow the users to change it.

In addition to the above, you can try this:
Under the User Configuration>Administrative Templates>Control Panel>Display>Screen Saver executable name, you can specified the the program or program that you use to run, it could be a picture etc. You just need to make sure the executable and the needed file exist on all the workstation as mentioned above.

Lets say you want to have a wallpaper with company logo for all machines. You can try User Configuation>Administrative> Templates>Desktop>Active Desktop>Active Desktop Wallpaper

There is software out there that you can purchase that will allow you to make your own screen savers so that they will install on windows.
If you do a web search for screen saver makers, you will find there are tons of free apps out there that will allow you to make a screen saver out of the picture you want to use and then you can install it.
