Css := #sitebg{position:fixed;top:0;left:0;overflow:hidden;height:100%;width:100%;z-index:-1000}

<script type=”text/javascript”>

$(‘body’).append(‘<img id=”sitebg” src=”image-link” />’);
var siteBg = $(‘#sitebg’);

var imgw = siteBg.width();
var imgh = siteBg.height();
var windoww = $(window).width();
var windowh = $(window).height();
var windowwratio = windoww/imgw;
var windowhratio = windowh/imgh;
var widthdiff = windowwratio * imgw;
var heightdiff= windowhratio * imgh;
if(heightdiff > windowh) {
width:windoww + ‘px’,
height:heightdiff + ‘px’
} else {
width:widthdiff     + ‘px’,
height:windowh + ‘px’
