I'm looking to make a big jpeg as my background where it stretches and also stays static even if the browser is resized or viewed with a bigger monitor. Was wondering if there was a module that gave this functionality?

This is a CSS question, not a Drupal question :-) – Chapabu Feb 27 '13 at 10:10
@Chapabu How to actually style the image to be used as a background is a CSS question, but the image needs to be uploaded and rendered as well on a Drupal site, which will require some Drupal code or similar to get this functionality. This is not a pure CSS question. – googletorp Feb 27 '13 at 12:48
@googletorp It doesn't say anywhere in the question that "the image needs to be uploaded and rendered". With all due respect (you guys do a cracking job), I think I'm going to have to disagree on this one. I have added my answer anyway just in case this stays open :) – Chapabu Feb 27 '13 at 13:55
Agree with @Chapabu, this can't be answered without referencing CSS background stretching techniques. Otherwise the question should be "how do I upload/render CSS/images files in Drupal?", and would be too vague anyway – Clive Feb 27 '13 at 14:09

Sounds like you are looking for something along the lines of the Backstretch module.

Just what i was looking for. I know its just a CSS question, but my clients would have no idea of how to code CSS. which is why i need a simple module for them to change the background easily. Thanks for this! – duckx Feb 27 '13 at 17:52

I think you are looking for something like this

bg image module

or maybe this can help you noggin module

There is also the other option of using Fusion and then integrate the background picture to the body accordingly to Fusion

You don't need any modules - this is basic CSS.

Just upload the background image to your theme's images directory (or wherever you choose to store your images) and apply the following:

body {
  background-image: url("path/to/your/background/image.jpg");
  background-position: fixed;
  background-size: 100% 100%; /*You have to declare H/W, it doesn't appear to be inherited*/
  background-repeat: no-repeat; /*Just in case*/

Source: CSS Info - Background size

Support/compatibility: caniuse.com - Background size

IE 6-8 Polyfill: You can use jquery.backgroundSize.js to add functionality in IE6-8.
