"Obviously, when you are composing a background, you
need to consider what's going to appear in front of it: you don't
want to create something really busy, and certainly not where the
foreground graphics will appear. I always leave some space for the
login box when I'm laying out my background for KDM; with GRUB,
it’s necessary to keep most of the screen relatively smooth
because GRUB will put "terminal text" on top of the graphic you
create. I found that the way that GRUB handles this text is pretty
forgiving, but you still don't want to have a face or busy
patterns, especially on the upper left part of the screen where the
menu entries will appear."
