PowerPoint VBA: How to manipulate slide background picture?

I've built a fairly sophisticated dialog to let users of my PowerPoint add-in adjust the positioning, scale, and zoom of a slide background photo image.  

When I have set the background picture to tile as a texture (using currentslide.Background.Fill.TextureTile = True), then VBA lets me set the offset and scale, using these methods:
currentslide.Background.Fill.TextureHorizontalScale =
currentslide.Background.Fill.TextureVerticalScale =
currentslide.Background.Fill.TextureOffsetY =
currentslide.Background.Fill.TextureOffsetX =

However, when the background picture is NOT set to tile as texture (currentslide.Background.Fill.TextureTile = False), I can't find the methods for VBA to control these Offset values?  

Does anybody know where to find these methods?
