Sorry, but no. The size must be under 256KB.

You could use Paint, or some other image program, to resize the image to make it smaller to reduce it's size though.

Log On Screen - Change

Hope this helps some,
Shawn

The "Windows 7 Logon Background Changer" works but since it's limited to 256kb, the image quality is reduced... :/
I've heard of editing a file called Imageres.dll, but I can't find anymore information on it...

Sorry, but even if you edited imageres.dll, it wouldn't work if the image is over 256KB.
