To use an image as a wall decoration in SL is simple. But, there are some quality issues that get a bit complex.

Images in SL are stored as JPG2000 format images. This means the dimensions have to be a multiple of 2... 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024 max. Anything larger than 1024 is resized by the SL servers. They aren't that hot at resizing. PS and GIMP do a much better job.

You can have a 256x1024 upload. A 300x1024 will be resized to 256x1024 with some loss of quality.

So... if your image is an odd size, consider resizing it in PS.

JPG images are a lossy format. Uploading JPG is converting an image with lost data into another lossy format, losing even more quality. PNG and TIFF are good formats for working on the PC and uploading with a minimal loss of quality.

Upload the image. Rez a prim, cube. Edit the cube. Put your image on the cube as a texture. 

Size the cube so its dimensions are the same ratio as the image's.

For the Profile, an image with a 4:3 ratio works. The SL Wiki is out of date on profile pictures. Edit your profile image via the web at your my.secondlife.com.

I may be wrong on this, but I thought you could only post inworld snapshots to your feed - and that doesn't even work half the time

Ahh, I took 'on my wall' to mean 'on my profile feed' - I've heard people call it that.  Never thought about the wall of a house/building.
