Sorry, I don't know how this post got missed!

For a Go 1000 or 1005 you just add the pictures you want (in .jpg or .bmp file format) using the "MyTomTom" utility software (get it at https://tomtom.com/en_gb/mytomtom/getstarted/)

Once MyTomTom is installed, connect the GO1005, then click on the MyTomTom icon in the PC system tray (next to the clock) and select "Add Community Content" from the pop-up box.

In MyTomTom, scroll down to "Community images on device" and click "Add image". Follow the prompts to add as many as you like.

Image size can be anything from 1x1 pixels (obviously a bit silly!) to 1280x1024, and the system will make a good attempt to expand or squash them to fit the screen (without changing the shape), but the native screen resolution is 480x272, so a multiple of that will look best.

Once they are on the system, you then select them on the unit itself in Settings page 4 - "Change Start-up Image" and "Change shut-down image".
