Desktop Background in 7 Starter

Is there an easy way to change the desktop background in Windows 7 Starter? I'm heading off to work a camp job in less than two weeks and I'll be gone for 2 months without seeing my family. I was wanting to change my background to a portrait of my family. There MUST be an easy way to do this, short of downloading a bunch of software and playing with customizations...... Right???

I set my wallpaper with Irfanview

IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide

To set wallpaper with Irfanview:

Open image in Irfanview

Click on Options> Scroll down to Set Wallpaper, and I choose centered
