just press and hold your finger on an empty space on the home screen, and select wallpaper.
you can also select images from your sd card using this way

Thanks iRhyiku, appreciate your help. I've done that and chose background gallery. Problem is that it's empty! I would have expected that there would be some wallpaper already there to choose from!

At the homescreen, press the menu button, then tap wallpapers and you can choose from the built in wallpapers, or an image from your SD Card

They should have wallpapers pre-installed. I did when i upgraded from 1.6 to 2.1 not rooted, or anything
hold anywhere on the home screen (or press menu - wallpaper)
and choose wallpaper
...?

There is definitely wallpapers included on any version of ROM or Android, if you go to the homescreen, press the menu button, and tap wallpapers, then you can choose what wallpaper you want:

Wait, so what happens when you push the menu button at the homescreen?

Yes, I can. But the question is and was: shouldn't there be a standard set of wallpapers there? If so I want to have them. So what do I do to get them? Factory reset?

Yes there should be.. not sure why there isn't. How did you update the phone? I don't think a factory reset would work

This made me check again......and then I noticed the folder wasn't really blank but very slightly greyish and under it there were another two slightly greyish squares. I then found that I could scroll to the right and there they were!!! Beautiful standard wallpapers!
Glad I warned beforehand!
Thank you Dudeman for your help and patience!!!
