    Do you want to change the Desktop background?
    If so, go to System Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver > Desktop.

    Or do you want to actually just display a photo in a frame on the Desktop, like this?

    If you want to set an image as your background image just right click (two finger press) on the file icon and then select "set desktop picture" option..

    I apologise if I misunderstood your question.
