Just in anticipation of the next release, Would we will finally be able to achieve this:
It will be a nice and appreciated release by all and doubting Thomases. Thanks.
This functionality is actually already possible on all elements with background images except on the browser fill. You can insert a background image, and then in the Fitting drop down, select either "Scale to Fill", or "Scale to Fit", whichever you are looking for. We are currently exploring our options in allowing this for browser background images, but in the meantime I would recommend making a post over on http://forums.adobe.com/community/muse/ideas. We keep an eye on ideas there and how many votes an idea has and use that to help us prioritize our features a little better.

Hi Andrew, the height of the image does not fit the container.As shown here: http://whiteboard.is/ . This feature have been requested as an idea several times in the previous community board. Thanks
The effect seen on that site would be acheived with a "Scale to Fill" background.
Hi andrew, I beg to disagree that the referenced image is achievable within Muse. I drew a rectangle (which creates a DIV based on a rectangle container, please see MUSE generated code), then filled with an image this is what I got(Stretched image!):
The only way we can do a background image to a site in Muse is thru arbitrary HTML with CSS which is code-based and not a feature Muse can be proud of, because that is not the idea. Muse background image cannot achieve that because the feature are limited to original size, Tile, Horizontally tile, vertically Tile. Even when you use Original size the image has to be a big-size image and it doesn't scaled proportionally when resized. It crops the images! In addition, the reference was achieved thru images/content fitted into a DIV using jquery. They are not site background-image often place as html in the css. This is DIV based with Jquery.
You are correct. I was specifically referring to the effect within rectangles as you demonstrated. It is not yet possible to do this on the browser background. As far as the screenshot, there are known issues surrounding that specific scenario that we are working on improving. But, the effect on the site will not be possible without browser background fill support for the property because a rectangle cannot be stretched height-wise to fill the browser (as this must be done with jQuery). Once again, I'd recommend putting an idea in the idea section so new users can vote on it.
