\definelayer[chapterstart][width=\paperwidth,height=\paperheight]
\definelayerpreset[lefttop][corner={left,top},location={right,bottom}]
\setlayer[chapterstart][preset=lefttop]{\externalfigure[cow]}
\setuphead[chapter][before={%

\setlayer[chapterstart][preset=lefttop]{\externalfigure[cow]}%
		   \setupbackgrounds[page][background={chapterstart}]}]
\starttext
\chapter{First chapter}
\chapter{Second chapter}
\stoptext
