Cover Image

I have been using Sigil for a while and was wondering about how to insert the cover image that will correctly fill the screen on my Nook Classic. When I tried to make the cover the size of the nook it adds a white page after the cover.
I have looked at other books and the cover's are full screen on the nook and in Sigil they are stretched over the entire section.
Is there a way to add a picture that will auto detect the device and make it the correct size for the page?

<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" height="100%" preserveAspectRatio="none" version="1.1" viewBox="0 0 343 500" width="100%">
<image height="500" width="343" xlink:href="../Images/cover.jpeg"></image>

The cover.jpeg needs to be changed to what the actually picture you are using is and this coding going right after <body>. I fight it easier just to copy this before the picture name and then add the </image> after the image name.
The height and width need to be adjusted, besides just where it says the height and width the numbers need to be replaced after the viewBox="0 0.
So if an image is 600x760 then after the 0 0 it needs to say 600 760 and the height needs to be set as 760 and the width as 600.
So the new coding would look like:

<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" height="100%" preserveAspectRatio="none" version="1.1" viewBox="0 0 600 760" width="100%">
<image height="760" width="600" xlink:href="../Images/cover.jpeg"></image>

Thank you for posting the code. I have been using other code for my covers, but the results are not always great. "Improving cover pages" is on my "learn how to do" list, so will give your method a go

Please be aware that the coding has only been tested on the Nook Classic I have. If there are any computer programs that can mimic other devices then please let me know so I can tweak the code if it needs to be done.
