You need to create a custom login page.The default login page of FBA in SharePoint 2010 is very simple. It only provides a Login control with the user name, password and remember me option.

follow the instruction below to create a custom login page:

thanks for taking time to reply. We are very new to SharePoint 2013. The coding behind the scenes is something im not familiar with. im find on the user front edit, web parts etc. ive looked through these guides but it still doesn't make sense. I just cant see "code" to put in to point to a logo.png - am I thinking this is simple? and that actually putting a logo in is more work than I thought – Andy Barker Jul 31 '14 at 19:55
The deafult login page is located here: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\TEMPLATE\IDENTITYMODEL\LOGIN\default.aspx. You can modify that in Visual Studio. I know you said that you didn't want to create a new one but you could make a copy of the deafult one, add that to a new project and make your changes to the copy. That way you will preserve the default login page if you need to revert… – Waqas Sarwar MCSE Jul 31 '14 at 20:04
yeah I have made a few copies of this file. but I still don't see how to add my company logo in so it shows on the login page. its just the default login is very basic and dull – Andy Barker Jul 31 '14 at 20:10

You can't edit the existing one, however you can create a custom FBA login page and do whatever styling you want. There is a good blog post on MSDN about it:
