This document discusses modifying the Netweaver login screen to replace the default image with a custom one.
The image on the Sap Sourcing login page is modifiable through the theme object in SAP Sourcing. However when the UME is used for authentication the Sourcing login page is bypassed completely for end users. To perform a similar branding operation on the Netweaver login page a simple property update with a new image is required.

1.) Provide a properly sized image for the login page. As you can see the default image size is 290X360 Pixels.

4. 4.) Replace the current file value by setting a custom value, saving the change and restarting the instance. . In my case the file was called dude.png. The property was changed to: layout/dude.png.

6. 6.) Other properties can also be modified to further effect the login page. For instance the branding_ text.
The application is now ready to be used.
