Windows 7 Lockscreen Wallpaper

Hi Experts,

We are going to be rolling out a corporate Lockscreen with our company logo in the bottom right hand corner, but when we use different wallpapers the image is either too stretched or too small.

Has anyone else deployed a corporate Lock Screen wallpaper and if so what dimension sizes have been used.

Bear in mind the issue here seems to be the wallpaper size/dimensions not the way we're deploying it.

The instructions we used to deploy the wallpaper are here:

That would greatly vary with what screen resolutions are active on your network. I would just build images for those or if you want here is a link that lists common resolutions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Display_resolution

I currently do, I just use one bmp file that is 1024x768 since the majority of the computers that this policy is applied to has that resolution.
