    I am trying to change the backgrounds in my windows from white to a picture, Ive followed the instructions but I havn't had any luck on making it work. Is there something I'm missing?

    You mean these I suppose?

    Have you regarded that the window(s) need(s) to be in ICON VIEW (Command + 3)?

    Where is the photo located on your HDD?
    And what exact Mac OS X version do you use?
    Have you restarted Finder yet?
    Have you tried another image?
