Customizing OWA logon page

We are trying to customize the logon page for OWA. I just want to remove the text at the top which says "Outlook Web App" and replace it with a logo. The problem is the files are in GIF format (I am modifying the file lgntopl.gif), and the format really stinks. I have to believe its because its a GIF file and limited in colors. The logo appears but if you look at it closely, its all grainy. I can't use a bmp or jpeg cause I am assuming the file name has to be lgntopl.gif. Does anyone know what file or program calls these GIF files? Is it possible to edit this file or program and change the name of lfntopl.gif to something else. If not, any suggestions. There has to be a better way to do this than what I am doing. I am using Paint right now but if the file has to be saved in a GIF format, I don't think a better program would help. The logo starts in BMP format I think but by the time its saved in the GIF file, it loses a lot of its luster and really looks bad.

these articles contain enough information on the gif files and what changes you can make for

Saw those articles. A lot of info but I really think the problem is you are limited to using GIF files and thus 256 colors. I was hoping there would be some editable file that calls lgntopl.gif and I could rename it to lgntopl.jpeg or bmp and use a better quality image but the logon.css file makes no reference to the .gif file.

Gave up on this. GIF is limiting to 256 colors and thats it. Apparently there is no way to change this.
