bgStretcher BG Image Resizer & Slideshow for Magento

bgStretcher (Background Stretcher) is an extension for Magento for stretching one or more images proportionally across an entire page or element. When multiple images are supplied, bgStretcher displays them in a configurable slideshow with advanced options. The plugin allows you to add a large image (or a set of images) to the background of your web page and will proportionally resize the image(s) to fill the entire window area. The plugin will work as a slideshow if multiple images are used. The speed, duration, transition effects, and slide direction are configurable. Available transition options include none, simpleSlide, superSlide and fade. Sequence mode can be set to normal, backwards, or random. Additionally, the resizing of the images can be optionally animated when the container is resized. Class names may also be passed to bgStretcher to define Next & Previous buttons and a pagination element.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredible tool for perfect background images This extension has proved to be extremely useful to enhance the look of my Magento site. I'm able to apply the photos that I've taken of my products and easily drop them into the Magento admin area to be displayed on the front-end home page of my site. The appearance of my site alone has improved dramatically, and I think it will help sell more of my products too. I'm looking forward to the release of the next version, which is supposed to have a feature to assign different photos for different categories. December 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great extension to stretch background images Easy to use and nice extension. I previously hard coded javascript to do this, but with bgstretcher, I'm able to setup images with intelligent stretching for backgrounds without me having to code it into my templates. I also like now that my client's have a good UI to manage those images. This is a "must have" magento extension for me and my types of designs and layouts. September 30, 2013
