How do you change the logo for a site template in SharePoint 2010?

I am looking for a way to change the logo of a site template. When you go to "Site Action" - "More Options" - "Site", I can see the site template that I created. How do you change the logo of the template so that it shows something else then the default image? I believe I will be using SharePoint Designer or I would prefer using SP Designer.

Any help would be great.

Below is some code that should help you with this task.  It is not too pretty, but it will do the job.  The first part is going to display the Site Logo for the site collection in question which is identified by the first $sitename.

$webapp = Get-SPWebApplication http://intranet
foreach ($SPSite in $webapp.sites)

$sitename= "http://bentest"
$site=new-object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite($sitename)
foreach($web in $site.Allwebs)
write-host $web.SiteLogoUrl

Change the site image for all sites in a given Site Collection

$sitename= "http://bentest"
$sitelogo= "http://bentest/site_documents/sitelogo.jpg"
$site=new-object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite($sitename)
foreach($web in $site.Allwebs)
