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][...].

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

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

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


    \starttext

    \startstandardmakeup[background=backgroundimage]
      Whatever
    \stopstandardmakeup

    Next

    \stoptext


Scaled Full Page Image 2

Another way to use a full-page image includes:

  \startTEXpage
    \externalfigure[cow.pdf][width=\paperwidth, height=\paperheight]
  \stopTEXpage
