I would also like to know this. It's annoying not being able to do that.

If you will right click on the selected wallpaper, you will find the option to select it for wallpaper. Presto, it will become your new wallpaper. When I do that, it then is located in the pictures folder.

If you download and install DeskDecal and put a shortcut in your dock, you can drag your picture to the icon and it'll set it as your desktop picture.

I think that's a feature of the Safari 3 beta - so if you're running regular Safari 2 you won't see this option.

Another reason to use Firefox. Right-click, set as desktop background.

I'm using Camino and it doesn't do that. It only has View Image, Copy Image, Copy Image Location, and Save Image... I guess you can't do it in Camino. I'll try out DeskDecal.
