I'm using Fedora 18 (Spherical Cow) with Cinnamon as my DE.

I'd like to right-click on an image and select the "Set As Desktop Background" option to, well, set the image as my desktop background. It is a huge pain in the ass to open the image with Shotwell, then pressing Control+B to set it as my background.

Just copy the image to pictures folder. Then it is simple to set wall paper directly. using desktop background application.

Nautilus does not yet provide a right click context menu to set images as backgrounds. You can file an RFE upstream at

You'll either have to use the advice given here, or use shotwell as you already know.
