    probably not the right forum page for this question. You might get a better response in Images and Graphic design:

    hope that helps

    I'm not sure I'm understanding what you mean by "eight-bit." Are you trying to reduce the colours of your photo? Is this an artistic effect I'm just unaware of?

    The normal way one makes a photo into a desktop background ("wallpaper" is a Windows term) is to right-click on the desktop, choose "Change Desktop Background" and choose a photo from your photo library through the resulting dialog box. The picture of the current background is also a "well" into which you can drag other images.
