Click in your name (upper right corner) -> System Settings -> Background

Also if you open an image with Image Viewer (eog) you can right click on it and "Set as Desktop Background" :)

Alternative way:

Click on the top left Corner (Activities corner) [also pressing the WINDOWS button does the same].

Type "background" and select the matching icon.

(remark if you have installed an none english version of fedora you may have to search for your local translation of the word background)
