    The standard ones are in /use/share/wallpapers but one I downloaded from the KDE site is in .kde4/share/wallpapers/ I presume adding there will make it appear when you select Desktop settings.

    Drag the image to the desktop, let it go there. You will get a list of options, select "image" and it will become your wallpaper.

    It is allways easier as one expects it to be. And very logical, when one knows the trick.

    EDIT: do not forget to unlock your widgets first.
