I can't believe I didn't see this in the galleries until today.  Greenreaper has created a logon pack for Windows Vista that makes use of the included wallpapers on your PC.  Vista includes a bunch of beautiful wallpapers, and this pack lets you easily have them as logon screens now. 

"Installation instructions: Extract .logonvista files to a directory or to your desktop, then drag and drop them on to the LogonStudio Vista window. Logons should appear at the bottom, under "Built-in logon screens". The .logonvista files can be deleted after install."

To use this pack you need to have LogonStudio Vista (free) installed.

Is that not too cool? I don't know how it works, but it does and I love it.

It's magic! No, really . . .

To be honest, I cheated a bit. The background file is specified by a path. Normally logon come with their images, so the path is just "X.jpg". However, LogonStudio has the ability to load files from any path, including paths relative to environment variables and executable resources. As all of the Windows wallpapers are in predictable locations, I just have to point to them.

The skin file itself is tiny, as the 10kb autogenerated thumbnail is not included in the exported skin.

It will just skip the logon if the file isn't there (for example, the Media Center logon is only available if you actually have this Premium feature installed).
