You can recover the custom splash screens simply by booting the live CD again.

The Gimp splash is located at:

You can either mount your /usr partition from the live CD and sudo cp the files from those locations on the CD to the corresponding locations on your hard disk, or just copy the files to a flash drive and reboot into your installed Mint, then copy the files.
