Still remember how to change login background for Tiger? In Leopard, it's totally different.
I remember the last time I changed Tiger login background, I only need to go inside my Desktop Pictures folder and change the filename. Now in Leopard, what should I do?
Leopard stores the default login background in the form of file named
DefaultDesktop.jpg. This file is exactly located inside Macintosh HD ▸ System ▸ Library ▸ CoreServices ▸ DefaultDesktop.jpg. As you expected from Leopard, your DefaultDesktop.jpg is actually Aurora.jpg by default.
After you spotted the file, change it to other name, such as ExDefaultDesktop. Then, drag the new login background into the folder and change the filename into DefaultDesktop.jpg. Next time you log on your Mac OS X Leopard, you should get your new login background.
