I found out that the "save as picture" is a right-click that sometimes
works, and siometimes does NOT. [??] also that there is also
sometimes the option in the dropdown or pop-up menu (with the right click)
that lets you save as a bitmap. xxx.PNG. so, nutshell, I was albe
to save three of the ones I liked most. it took me long enough. I
did check OOoforum, but nothing there. your info plus my own messing
around let me get the job done. [[well, mostly!]]

I found the place and added three 'wallpapers'; they haven't appeared.
Probably will after I've rebooted. ---I see that my newest KDE is
3.5.10. Sometime this year I'll try KDE4 again.-- Meanwhile, thanks
for your help!
