Change the login window background picture - revisited

There's no reason to use sudo -i for just one command—that gives you a fully interactive root shell, which you will then have to exit afterwards. It's safer to just do

$ sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/ \
DesktopPicture '/path/to/replacement/image/file.jpg'

which will only execute that single command as root.
