In system preferences under desktop & screensaver you should have the option of choosing any or all your photos from iPhoto among other options and it will give you a preview in the window to the right in the same box.

Are you right-clicking on your desktop and selecting "Change Desktop Background"?

You should get a window like this one that opens. On the left side will be your iPhoto with events, etc. and you can click on there and go to wherever your photo is that you want to use.
