Problem getting picture to wallpaper

Recommended Posts

All morning I have been trying to get two pictures side by side. I finally got the two pictures side by side and saved. When I open the picture it will only open in paint. I would like to put this pic up on my desktop for wallpaper. There is not even an option to save as background. I tried saving it as a jpeg as well and same thing....nothing. Can anyone tell me what to do or what I am doing wrong here? I thank you very much in advance.

windows 7? go to the folder where you have it save.. dont open it in PDN or any other modification program. in factdont open the file at all, left click the file ONCE, then right click it, one of the options should be to set as background,


go to control panel, appearance and personalization, personalzation, desktop background - and use the browse feature to find thepic and set it as wallpaper

You forgot to save as a .png image. The picture is still saved in a paint.net format and is not recognized as an image by windows

EDIT: didn't see the part where you said you tried to save as a jpg...try mountnman's suggestion first, but if that doesn't work, save as a .png just to make sure. If it isn't working then, I don't have a clue.
