ID 9 you have to set the pixel count to match the size picture you want. Drag picture on to the background or button you created at that pixel count.g
Apex you can create a button and drag and it auto sizes. Afterward you can stretch or shrink as you like.

thank you! when you say 'set pixel count' i assume you mean to take the image into photoshop or something along those lines and define the dimensions (in px) then save the image and drag it in? do you have an app you recommend besides photoshop?

use pixlr.com to resize the image or if you are using a Apple computer you can resize in the preview app.
No doubt there would be similar program on a Windows computer to do the same without needing photoshop to be installed.

I have a number of my own 'User' libraries that I use in ID.
And you will need to use ^#BGCENTER as the file extention.
Resize and/or crop your image to 1280 x 800, for consistancy I also convert all of my images to PNG, but not necessary.
