How to Customize Boot Logo on Mac OS X

At times, the boot screen of Mac OS X can be little boring, and we would like to customize it. There is an app by which you can customize or change the boot logo on Mac OS X. Here we will explain how to change it.

Mac OS X is one of the smartest operating systems available for desktop or laptop. Especially the latest Mac OS X El Capitan, feature like Split View is catching eyeballs around the globe. It’s a human psychology; everything seems to be less after a certain period of time.

We tend to change things every now and then. We keep changing wallpapers on our Mac as per our mood, but we hardly consider changing the boot logo. That’s because we have assumed that it cannot be changed. But to your surprise, we can customize or change our boot logo.

  1. Animated images are not supported, so don’t use it.
  2. Apple original logo is 90 x 90, so you will need to resize your image to this dimension.
  3. Large size images might not be displayed. Instead, a complete black boot screen will be visible.

BootXChanger comes with some sample images which you can use. Apart from logo, you can also change the background color of your boot screen, in order to match your new logo.
