Loginox is an application which lets you easily customize the login screen.

Use Loginox to change the login background image or the login logo with a single Drag-and-Drop.

If your Mac is password protected, the first screen you see after starting up is the login screen. This screen contains the default image of Mac OS X, which can get boring after a while.

Why navigate through all the folders on your hard disk? Drag a JPG or PNG image from anywhere and drop it into the main window of Loginox. A simple click on the Set new Login image more...

It will not work if FileVault is turned on. It worked fine without FileVault, but after I had encrypted the hard drive, the Login background, as well as the Login logo, were not showing.

Wow, what an incredibly helpful "review". It's so fun when "reviewers" believe this section to be a forum where they can share their opinion with everyone, and not an actual review.

"What the crap?! That looks stupid, plus I already have the function in another app! Man I'm going to let everyone know how stupid this is! The internet should be glad I'm still around to tell them when I think something is stupid and is another app already, instead of actually reviewing the app...yeah!".

@Richard: The primary reason I still use MacUpdate over the Mac App Store or dev sites directly is to scope out what people think of a particular app relative to similar apps. The “Similar Software” section above does part of this job, but I do highly appreciate user reviews weighing these factors.

While @Acuraice may have been a little snarky, it should also be clear that he/she isn't dismissing Loginox as inferior, only a subset of what Onyx offers. For me, this was very helpful; Onyx is already on my computer, so I'll try that first and come back if it doesn't meet my expectations.

It does also look like @Acuraice has a fairly negative score from dishing out critcism elsewhere. However, I believe those who are most critical are those who we have the most to learn from.

Doesn't work on unibody Mini running 10.7.4, 4GB RAM

when I drag my current desktop image (jpg) onto app, nothing happens - the image is not 'accepted' and the default linen background remains.

needs more work, but hope it sees success because I hate linen

Works great on 10.7.1 Lion now.

Loginox is an amazing application that will bring "joy" to your login screen by easily droppin your pictures.

Cool app, thanks guys!

What, are we all in petty mode today? This program does what it purports to do. It's features are sufficient for many of us. And, ya, it's ridiculous to even try to argue about the size of the program in this age of gigabytes and terabytes. Go find something genuinely worthy of picking on.

Yet another one function program for a function found in so many system tweaking packages out there. Even if free, its just not worth cluttering up a system with one more such utility. Most people don't change their login screen that often. It's a nice experiment for someone learning to program, so hopefully it will lead to something more sophisticated.

I understand if you decide it is not a program you need but to be so concerned about others buying a program you have not even tried (for whatever reason) seems strange to me. Almost like those reviews that are so good they are over the top and you know the person has an interest in your buying the product (work for the designer, makes a profit on sales). Yours almost seems like a review from a competitor. It's the US and we are capitalist so everyone can and should bring their products to market…demand will determine the outcome unless an outside force chimes in to influence peoples opinion in a way that has nothing to do with how the product works.
