How To Change GRUB Splash image/Background on Your Linux

If you are a Linux user than you are probably tired of always seeing that black screen on boot time before your operating system boots up. Don't worry guys because today I am here with an article that can help you beat that boredom by changing the GRUB loader background with a picture of your choice.

Now before we go any further lets take a look at the guide for Images that you can use in GRUB background.

Choosing a GRUB  Background Image

GRUB 2 can use PNG, JPG /JPEG and TGA images for background. The image must meet the following specifications:
  • JPG/JPEG images must be 8-bit (256 color) 
  • Images should be non-indexed, RGB

      Change GRUB background Image

  • Open root directory and search for a folder named "boot".
  • inside "boot" open the folder "grub".
  • inside this folder place the image file of your choice (make sure that it matches the above requirements).
  • At last open a terminal and enter the command: sudo update-grub
  • Restart your pc to see the changes.

     And that's how you do it!
