Loginox is an application which lets you easily customize the login screen.
Use Loginox to change the login background image or the login logo with a single Drag-and-Drop.
If your Mac is password protected, the first screen you see after starting up is the login screen. This screen contains the default image of Mac OS X, which can get boring after a while.
Why navigate through all the folders on your hard disk? Drag a JPG or PNG image from anywhere and drop it into the main window of Loginox. A simple click on the Set new Login image button will change the login background image.
The login logo can be changed in the same way. Choose the tab Login logo and drop a JPG, TIF, PNG or PSD image into the New Login image frame. A simple click on the Set new Login logo button will change the login logo.
For switching back to the Mac OS X default login background image or login logo click on the Reset button in the corresponding tab.
Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard and 10.6 Snow Leopard:
The image size of the default image is 2560 x 1600 and has a ratio 8/5. You can prepare your images with Sizerox (www.sizerox.com) to have the right dimension and ratio for your customized login screen.
OS X 10.7 Lion and OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion:
The image size of the login screen will be automatically adjusted. If the image ratio does not fit, the image will be cropped in the suitable size. However you can prepare your images with Sizerox (www.sizerox.com) to resize them for your customized login screen and logo.
Please note: The contrast of the login screen is set automatically by Mac OS X system. If your image has not enough contrast, the buttons at the bottom of the login screen are not clearly visible. In such cases, you may find another suitable image or edit the image and increase manualy its contrast.
