Splashscreen On 16x02 Display

Hi Guys Im trying to make a simple picture splashcreen for my 16x02 display. How can I achieve this? Im using an arduino uno.

Unless there is something special about your LCD (link ?) then the best that you can do is to use a combination of the normal character set (numbers, letters and punctuation) and up to 8 user defined characters.

What did you have in mind for a splash screen picture ?

I was thinking of a scaled small logo along with text. If the scalled small logo is impossible to do.... How can I program the arduino just to display text at the startup?

Look into custom characters and use that to do your small logo.

Ok but how do I display it at the very beginning for 2-3 seconds?

I assume that you know how to setup and write to the LCD

In setup, you can write the text and delay for three seconds. Or if your application needs to do things immediately, use a non-blocking function in loop() that after a certain time clears the display.
