This question already has an answer here:

Since I changed my wallpaper, I noticed that the logon screen didn't update. It still uses the wallpaper before I updated it. This is in Ubuntu 13.04.

Anywone any suggestions? I have been playing around with ccsm and unity tweak tool, so maybe I did something wrong there.

If you enabled the compiz wallpaper plugin in ccsm and told the file manager not to handle the desktop, then this could be the reason for the different wallpapers.

Do you have an encrypted home directory where your wallpaper is located? If so try to make a new directory e.g /wallpaper, copy your wallpaper there and set it from there. This should work.
