add image to theme?

I save an image as a desktop background, and I want to save it within a theme, so that it appears in my Control panel Personalization folder. How do I do that?

Thanks Boo,

That gets me part way there anyway. I was thinking there was a folder somewhere that I could add or delete from, but Seven handles such things in new and different ways, seeming to prefer to leave files "scattered" and refer to them instead of copying them to different locations.
