Hi.
Go to the registry, open the key with the bagground path, open the picture then in your prog and revert the colors, save it and maybe overwrite the other pic.
...just an idea...

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors
Backgroud is the value of the wallpaper background
if there is a picture as wallpaper you can find it on:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\desktop
Wallpaper


so your problem is to change the Background (if Wallpaper is (None) otherwise you have to change the image!!
