Try Ubuntu Tweaks. To install, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/next
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak 

Another way of doing it, is right click on the desktop, and click Change Desktop Background. enter image description here Click the + sign enter image description here Browse, and choose the image, and click open enter image description here The desktop background has changed with the new image enter image description here This is the login screen, with the new image applied. enter image description here

You all are not understandig what the guy wants. He wants exactly the opposite of what you're telling him. He wants the login screen with a DIFFERENT picture, not the same as his desktop wallpaper.

To solve your little problem, install UbuntuTweaks as Mitch said. Open it, go to the Tweaks tab and you'll see the option to change the login screen.

To install Ubuntu Tweaks:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/next
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak

You can do this, with 'Wallch'. install it from software center. every time when you change your desktop background, it will be autamatically your login background also.
