Background image not showing in preview pane for outlook 2013


I'm new to using background images in emails and I'm testing some code generated here:

I'd like to use the fit-to-cell option, but when I look at the email in outlook 2013, after downloading the images, the bg image doesn't show in the preview pane right away. Only after I resize the window or open up the email in a new window will the image display. Has anyone else seen this behavior?

Thank you,
