How to configure the lightdm-gtk-greeter

I installed this program lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings and it edited the /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf file with correct options.
I was trying to fix the font being too small on the login screen.
I also was able to add a custom picture to the login for my raspberry pi 4
