bgStretcher is a jQuery plugin for adding background images and re-sizing them to fit the entire window area.
You can add either a single image or a set of images; the latter effectively turns bgStretcher into a rather large slideshow.
bgStretcher’s options include preloading, pagination, proportional re-sizing, etc.
Overall, the plugin is a nice and greatly configurable solution. However, for multi-platform projects, a way of compressing images or using different versions of them would be more than welcome–performance can become a very real issue if bgStretcher isn’t used carefully.
