== A simple centered cover for a booklet ==

<texcode>

\setuppapersize[A5][A5]
\setuppagenumbering[alternative=doublesided]

\starttext

\startpagemakeup[align=center,doublesided=no,%
pagestate=start]% we want to number this

{\bfc This should be the long title, Andreas' solution\par}

\stoppagemakeup

This is the colofon

\chapter{Start}

\input knuth

\stoptext

</texcode>

Or, another solution (which can be tuned at will), which relies on a
new feature in MkIV: there is also a layout with the same name as the
makeup environment and you can control the margins of your new title
page environment with \setuplayout[makeupname][...].

<texcode>

\setuppagenumbering[alternative=doublesided]

%\showframe

\setuppapersize[A5][A4,landscape]
\setuparranging[2UP]

\definemakeup[titlepage][pagestate=start,doublesided=no]
\setuplayout[titlepage]
[backspace=2cm,width=108mm] % 148mm is the width, 20 mm of backspace,
% 20 mm of outer margin

\starttext

\starttitlepagemakeup
\raggedcenter
\bfc This should be the long, long, very long title\par
\stoptitlepagemakeup

This is the colofon

\chapter{Start here on page 3}

\dorecurse{20}{\input tufte\par}

\stoptext

</texcode>

== Scaled Full Page Image 1 ==

An elegant option is to extend the makeup mechanism to accept the background key:

\unprotect
\appendtoks
\setupbackgrounds[\v!page][\c!background=\makeupparameter\c!background]
\to \t_page_makeup_every_setup
\protect

Then you can use

<pre>
\setupexternalfigures[location={local,default,global}]

\defineoverlay
[backgroundimage]
[{\externalfigure[cow.pdf][width=\overlaywidth, height=\overlayheight]}]

\starttext

\startstandardmakeup[background=backgroundimage]
Whatever
\stopstandardmakeup

Next

\stoptext
</pre>

== Scaled Full Page Image 2 ==

Another way to use a full-page image includes:

<pre>
\startTEXpage
\externalfigure[cow.pdf][width=\paperwidth, height=\paperheight]
\stopTEXpage
</pre>
