It was removed from the Background panel because it was almost always a
poor choice. See this enhancement bug:

My main issue, and its basically a visual one, is that I have 2 4K
monitors, and the monitors I have use MST tiling. So one each monitor, I
have two copies of the background image, tiled side by side.

Sounds like you want the MST tiles to act as a single monitor, which is
something that Dave Airlie is working on.

 It would be
nice to get rid of this tiled background. (I can't use xinerama since if
I enable xinerama it kills the composite feature in the nvidia driver
and gnome won't load.)

Anyhow... Just asking. (If there's a work around that would be great.)

While waiting for proper MST support, you can use gnome-tweak-tool to
set the background to "spanned". See under the "Desktop" section.
