    I was wondering if there is a way to change the default wallpaper on the OSX logon screen? I would like the background to match my current wallpaper when I login into the system. Any help is appreciated.

    There is a file in /System/Library/CoreServices called DefaultDesktop.jpg. This is the wallpaper that displays behind the login.

    I saved the original by renaming it, and then copied my current wallpaper to this file name. Reboot, and it should be there...
