There's a good article that explains this perfectly, using the "Photos" screensaver - three things are involved:
The logon script is fairly trivial, copying from a network share to somewhere on the local hard drive.
The group policy settings for screensavers are found under
Policy > User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Control Panel > Personalization
where you can set which screensaver you want (in this case, the Photos screensaver).
Then you need to set the photo path, and export the registry key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Photo Viewer\Slideshow\Screensaver
for use in your group policy.
If WinXP screen savers can be used with Windows 7, then the 3D Flying Objects screensaver allowed us to select a user-defined image as a textured flag that wafted and waved around the desktop. A pleasing effect for a corporate logo.
Save desired file somewhere on user's HDD as a BMP (only works with BMP files)
Choose 3D Flying Objects as screensaver
Settings button for that screensaver
On Style drop-down, select Textured Flag and then choose the bmp file you saved
