Hi dfs4, Try this.

1. Right click your desktop.
2. Select "Personalize"
3. Click the "Desktop" link along the bottom of the window
4. Click the "Picture location:" drop down menu (where you can browse different folders)
5. Make sure "Windows Photo Viewer" is NOT selected.
6. Check "Downloads" and/or "Pictures" for your image.
7. If the image is not in one of those two folders, move it there.

You can now select center, tile, or any of the other options and they'll work
