Well I liked the dive boat scene with the terns in f27 so how can I add a photo to backgrounds in f28.

I noticed a xml file in /usr/share/backgrounds/f28/extras/f28-extras.xml which lists every photo in the folder

For KDE (and GNOME):

Let me know how it goes :)

sorry didnt mention gnome. Duh of course right click on the image, I never noticed set as wallpaper in the pop up menu. Same goes for image viewer and nautilus I had the list of images but had no idea what to do after that.

I consider this closed and Thank you.
