Sure. Post it here and let me know exactly what dimensions you want.

Also, for new questions, please start a new topic so it doesn't get super confusing.  ;)

By chance is there an artist in this forum who could help me out with a small project???
I have a logo.png file it has an invisible background and a 200x 200 Tux on it....
I tried converting my .png to tga to use as my grub screen, but grub makes it huge taking up the whole screen....

I guess what I am looking for is someone who knows how to make an invisible background, that is say about 1024x768 in size or larger, and place the little tux in the center of that background...
That way when I use it for grub menu, it would not disturb the original grub but you would get a little tux in the center of the grub screen, which would remain during boot up on machines where the splash don't work.....   :)

Maybe 1280x960 would be a good size cause it is going to shrink it down to what the machine can display in grub anyway so I think that would be a good size....  Thanks Kendall...  :)

@ rjm65

Please don't delete your postings like that .. it made the original topic impossible to follow

I've moved Kendalls post over here, but it still doesn't scan properly with you having deleted the post before his

Next time just ask me to split the topic ;)

That worked perfectly, Thanks Mark....   :)  :)  :)
I have a tiny tux center screen now during boot up rather then the text....
I guess there is no way to animate a tga file is there???

Never tried .. I gather TGA does support animation, but whether it would work with GRUB.......

I would have to find an animated tga on google and try it first to find out if grub supports it or not....
I was thinking it would be cool if tux would glow and then get dimmer as it boots up so ya know its doing something....  but I'm quite happy with this way too....  it does not force any branding on the grub and maybe kendall would consider a small tux in the grub of peppermint 5....  :)

I take it back, targa does not appear to support animation  :(
(I'd have sworn I used to see animated targa's on the Amiga ???)

Nope, Kendal is (quite rightly) unlikely to add a GRUB background image of ANY kind as it would overwrite any user customisation.

Looks like someone beat me to it. Apologies for not getting on that a bit more quickly.
