How I can put image (across the whole page) in background of all content pages (if there are more pages) like this:

If someone knows the solution and makes an example, I will be very grateful. I would like that the solution to be with Tikz package.

• You can use the background package (based on TikZ) as in, e.g., tex.stackexchange.com/questions/167719/… (and use \backgroundsetup{contents={}} to switch off the background after the TOC). Aug 13 '18 at 21:21
• You should take a look at the eso-pic package. Aug 13 '18 at 21:54

With eso-pic:

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage{titletoc}

\usepackage{eso-pic,graphicx}

\begin{document}

\AtPageLowerLeft{%
% Your background image here
\includegraphics[width=\paperwidth,height=\paperheight]{example-image}%
}%
}%
\tableofcontents

\chapter{Chapter One}
\section{Section One One}
\section{Section One Two}
\section{Section One Three}
\section{Section One Four}

\chapter{Chapter Two}
\section{Section Two One}
\section{Section Two Two}
\section{Section Two Three}

\chapter{Chapter Three}
\section{Section Three One}
\section{Section Three Two}
\section{Section Three Three}
\section{Section Three Four}
\section{Section Three Five}

\chapter{Chapter 4}
\section{Section 4 One}
\section{Section 4 Two}
\section{Section 4 Three}
\section{Section 4 Four}
\section{Section 4 Five}

\chapter{Chapter 5}
\section{Section 5 One}
\section{Section 5 Two}
\section{Section 5 Three}
\section{Section 5 Four}
\section{Section 5 Five}

\chapter{Chapter 6}
\section{Section 6 One}
\section{Section 6 Two}
\section{Section 6 Three}
\section{Section 6 Four}
\section{Section 6 Five}

\chapter{Chapter 7}
\section{Section 7 One}
\section{Section 7 Two}
\section{Section 7 Three}
\section{Section 7 Four}
\section{Section 7 Five}

\end{document}


\AddToShipoutPictureBG*{<stuff>} adds <stuff> to the BackGround of the current page while the unstarred version \AddToShipoutPictureBG{<stuff>} adds <stuff> to the current as well as subsequent pages. You can remove any BackGround material using \ClearShipoutPictureBG.

• Note that the OP asked for a background picture in all pages of the TOC, which I think can be done with your suggestion of the unstarred \AddtoShipoutPictureBG followed by a \ClearShipoutPictureBG after the TOC. Aug 14 '18 at 10:53
• @Marijn: Exactly like I suggest at the end of my answer.

• indeed, I just tried to point out to the OP that this part of your answer would fit his needs (whereas the MWE and the screenshot only show a background for the first page). Aug 14 '18 at 16:06
