Customise OS X's Login Screen With Any Logo You Want

Customise OS X's Login Screen with Any Logo You Want

The login screen on your Mac is perfectly functional as it is, but if you want to spice it up a little bit, blogger Jacob Salmela shows you how to customise the login screen with a logo of your choosing.

To do this, you can use a tool like the previously mentioned Deeper, but if you don't want to install a whole program just for a simple tweak it's easy to do manually. All you need is a PNG that's 428 X 248. Then, you'll need to save it as four different files. Here's Salmela's instructions:

You need four copies of this file, and they need to be named:

Once they are named correctly, just drag them into the following path:

/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/LoginUIKit.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LoginUICore.framework/Resources/

and then choose to replace all of them.

That's it, log out, and you should see your new logo. Head over to Salmela's site for a few sample images and instructions for making your own.
