Go to the "Media" application on your BlackBerry handset. Pick the "Pictures" icon, and click on it. You will see folders listed that have pictures in them. Open up one of these, and highlight to picrue you want to use for your wallpaper. Then click the menu button. You will be presented with several options including "Set As Home Screen Image". Click on that. The picture you have selected will now show up as your wallpaper.

Please note that if you are using one of the two stock themes that come on the AT&T wireless version of the Bold, this won;t work. They have the homescreen images locked. However, if you are using a different theme (I use the No Carrier Black theme) this feature will be available.

Good luck.

Good info except for the second paragraph. I'm using the Precision Silver theme that came with the AT&T version, and I have no problem setting images from Media as the home screen image. I've tried from both All Pictures and Picture Folders, and the images loaded fine.

It depends on the theme. Some themes will allow the same image that you add as your home screen wallpaper, some don't.
