Fat Splash Image

Here's what I am doing: I have been experimenting with replacing the obnoxious Win start up splash screen (logo.sys) with custom images. I've succeeded in doing this in a couple of ways including some excellent freeware I downloaded which allows me to use a bitmap file, but the image is stretched to fill the screen which doesn't do justice to the images.
The splash screen has to be 320 X 400 pixels and 256 colors.
It can be opened and edited with MSPAINT which also allows a save mode for the proper color setting.
The original screen, when viewed w/ paint is distorted so that when it is displayed at startup the proportions are correct.
I have PS 4 . Is there some way to distort a custom image properly so that it will display correctly as a splash screen?

First off, open logo.sys as bitmap in PS4.  Edit or create the custom image using 600x400 (the image should look as intended to display for splash)  After that, resize the image to 320x400 with 'constrain proportion' unchecked and save.  There you have your new splash screen.
