I'm looking for interesting techniques for using a photo as a background image. Though it is possible to scale an image using various javascript techniques, I'd rather not use this approach; where the page becomes tall the quality of the image deteriorates due to letter-boxing.

I'm currently using a photo with a 1 pixel crop from the bottom y repeated to fill the height of page. This works ok...ish but if anyone has any advice or links to better tutorials I'd be grateful. Perhaps some approach using photoshop?

Thanks in advance and sorry for ambiguos question.

Here is a link to a great tutorial about background images that teaches you, using both CSS and Javascript methods.
