Sorry — I wasn't thinking. The job has to be done manually. The log-in screen lives in /usr/share/backgrounds. As you see, there are two defaults: standard and wide screen. Simply replace one of them with your preferred picture.
But I can't find the login preference menu to drag and drop the GDM theme. How to install GDM theme in cent OS 6.3?
If I recall correctly - while it is possible to change the login background image fairly easily (David's instructions in the post above), I do not think it is possible to install the theme. It has something to do with changes to GDM.
