Add A Background Image To The Viewport

Recommended Posts

  • Topic Author
  • Hi,

    Can anyone tell me how to add a static background image to the viewport to use as reference?

    I seem to remember that you go to:

    Attributes > Mode > View settings > Back > the option is greyed out?

    Any help is great,

    This method only works in any mode other than perspective, so you use it for the elevation views (front/top/etc). To add a reference photo in perspective, either add a plane or a a background object and apply a texture to it.
