How do you put a screenshot as your desktop picture? (Macbook Pro)?

I've taken a screenshot with command control shift and 4, all I can do with it is paste it into a word document. It doesn't show up on my desktop when I take it, so I just drag the picture from work onto my desktop. No matter what I do when I click "set as desktop picture" it always comes up as a blue screen. Can I put it into iPhoto?

I don't use a Mac so forgive if this is a stupid question but could you past your screenshot into a program like paint and save it as a jpeg and then save that as your desktop background?
