What are the maximum sizes you can use as background. I have a jpg which is
2280x888 which will not fit even if I use tile or center.

It really depends on what resolution your display is set at. Normally
you choose a picture that is close to your display resolution so it
will look nice on the screen. Look at the Settings tab in the Display
applet (Control Panel) to see what resolution you are using.

Wondering if Rob cannot make a copy of the .jpg and resize/crop the copy to
approximate his screen resolution?

I should have thought of that. Thanks.
