You're not really that clear on what you want but it seems you want a background image when booting Grub. The page below explains it. If you want something else, more details.

that's the problem with having a gui utility for everything - it breeds clueless people.

cybernetico, i suggest you learn a few very simple things about editing the grub config files, most importantly /etc/default/grub. read the link yancek posted.

also, after every change you have to run
Code:
sudo update-grub
!!!

Maybe?

Don't think you have the size limit anymore. Ultimate screen size ought to be available in most newer distro's at grub.

i think these days any image will do, recently i just pointed my /etc/default/grub to a .png wallpaper, and it worked. maybe better to use .png.

Your post was good. I was just offering a second choice.

You may be right that a number of choices are available. At one time it was very specific format and size and location.

You're not helping yourself to get any help with cryptic statements like that. What did you try and what didn't work? I have an installation of Ubuntu and using the link I posted it worked just fine.
