Code to insert an image without stretching: (ORIGINAL CODE)

<div class="popup2-moremenu"><div class="floaty-boat"><br><img src="URL"/></div></div><div class="gr-box gr-genericbox"><br>Body text here..</div>

Code to stretch an image (It works as to repeat image ONLY FOR SOLID COLOR IMAGES though!) :

Insert the width and height in the <img> tag of the code as shown below:

<img width="YOUR-WIDTH-SIZE" height="YOUR-HEIGHT-SIZE" src="URL"/>

<div class="popup2-moremenu"><div class="floaty-boat"><br><img width="1000" height="1600" src="URL"/></div></div><div class="gr-box gr-genericbox"><br>Body text here..</div>
