A .scr is a screensaver file, a PNG is just an image. You can set the default background image via GPO utilizing the PNG, no conversion needed. Utilize the "Desktop Wallpaper" policy found in the Administrative Templates - http://gpsearch.azurewebsites.net/Default.aspx?PolicyID=141

You can use the PNG to set the "Photos" screensaver. This blog post steps you through the process - http://codegrue.wordpress.com/2011/04/20/implement-a-standard-photo-screen-saver-through-group-policy/

I am still having the hardest time getting the desktop background & screensaver to work via the GPO  I tried the above steps to setup the background.  Some uses are getting the black screen which is a know MS Kb.  issues. the fix is not working for me and the screen is still the when windows screensaver.   I may need some 1 on 1 assistance if possible.  this is a very important matter that I need to resolve today if at all possible.

Insure that all users have access to the location where the PNG is saved and applied via the GPO. If it is a network location every user may not have access.
