Index > What should the size of the background image be?

Although you can use any size for a background image, everyone's screen sizes are different so if your images is too large then some of your users won't see all of it and if its too small on some of them it won't cover the whole page.

We do have an option called the Scale to Fit option that can help you make sure that your background image is viewed exactly as you want it - you can choose for your background image to be stretched to the Whole page / Page Width / Page Height. However to aviod too much of a stretched look if you would like your image to cover the whole page try an image of 1500-1700 pixels in width.
