I want to change the way my joomla 1.5 admin login area looks, for example remove the joomla logo at the top and replace with another logo.

Can anyone help me?

    Yes you can!

    The easiest way is to check out the name of the image and then search for it. Then you can just replace that logo image with your own image.

    The best way is to use Firebug (plugin for FireFox). With Firebug you can see the image name and the path where it is located just by holding the mouse over the image when you are in inspect mode.

    Oh it is simple just get the administrator template and install it,
    it will be available in Template Management and hit Administrator tab
    just go to Extensions->Template Manager -> Administrator(this is a tab)
    you can find administrative templates from here
    or Google it

    Also if you dont install new admin template check the default template Khepri properties and only logo change ?

    replace this image at this location administrator/templates/khepri/images/h_green/j_header_left_.png
    h_green is the chosen color theme change it accordingly
