Bug Description

[Impact/Test Case]
The Lubuntu slideshow should have a screenshot with the website (as this is what gets up-to-date information). Right now it has a screenshot, which is inaccurate and does not represent the project well.

[Regression Potential]
None, this is simply replacing an image in the slideshow. Unless the underlying tooling changes, this shouldn't break.

[Additional Note]
Lubuntu considers this a blocker to releasing 16.04.4.

[Original Description]
To reproduce on Lubuntu install Lubuntu and on the last slide where it says to visit our website at it should be as that recieves updated information.

The slideshow shows the intended image on upgrade to 113.1, on the latest Lubuntu Xenial Daily ISO.

This is what was intended, so I'm marking this as passed.
