You can work around this issue by zooming into the lowest zoom that Yahoo offers for the area you are mapping, then Right click and select "Zoom In". It doubles the zoom of the whole Potlatch each time, I often Zoom In twice. Obviously, the Yahoo images become fuzzier, but it makes it a lot easier to create ways along the middle of a road. Because Potlatch is zoomed, you normally loose sight of the controls but panning still works fine. Selecting "Zoom Out" or "Show All" (if you're more than 1 zoom level in) means you can edit properties etc. as normal. BTW. nudging nodes a little bit is difficult while artificially zooming, I think Potlatch has some kind of anti-accidental node moving fuzz algorithm. You need to move the node more than 4 snap points away and back again to get around it.

BlueMM is right.

Our approach with the Yahoo imagery is not to deviate from their API in any way, because that would break their terms of use - so there won't be a "stretch" option.

However, future Potlatch (0.8 maybe?) will have a tiled background option, including OpenAerialMap? - so you'll be able to get the same landsat imagery stretched.
