Hey so I am having the same issue where I am trying to just put my own image but it tiles and there is no way to stop it that I can see. I have tried putting the code here that you suggested but it still is not working. Can you please advise. Here is the link to the page I am working on and you can probably get an idea of what I am trying to do on it. If you have any more advise on how to best use the Featured Widget for this please let me know.
I saw you asked to make a new thread so please disregard the comment left on the last thread.
