You really can't use a 19Mb background image on a website; not only does it take all the memory your host has allocated you but users would never see it unless they were on a *really* fast connection and waited 2 minutes.
Even a massive image should be no more than a couple of Mb's; try compressing the file by using an option such as "Save for Web and Devices" which should optimise the image whilst not reducing the quality.
If you need help compressing the image, ZIP the file and upload it, linking back to it here and I'll take a look.
I save it as "Save for Web and Devices" as png-24..how much size does a common background have?
Basically you should keep images under 500kb. Perfect wotuld be something between 100 and 200kb. Some browsers have problems with image sizes of 700kb+
