If you are using a site design like the one we are using here (Epik), there is plenty of opportunity to use back-stretched images on the home page.
With the Genesis Club Pro plugin it’s very easy to do. You just upload the images you want to use to your media library, and then list them in the Image Backstretch metabox in the Post Editor or Image Backstretch Widget. You can either backstretch over the whole body of the site or over a sub-section of a page. If you have a single backstretch section on a post or page then set it up in the Post Editor. If you are using multiple backstretch sections on the same page or are operating on the home then use an Image Backstretch Widget.
We’ve also done it on this page – just to make sure you don’t miss the feature. We are using a slideshow of four images of clouds and have set the opacity of the articles on the page to 80% so the images show through just a little bit.
The backstretch works better on the home page of course, but you get the point – the system is flexible and can be applied almost anywhere.
Also, if you look a this demo site you’ll see we back-stretched a single image over the whole body background.
