"background image"


may be a simple question but surely a question of a newbie… :slight_smile:

I want to model a car. For this purpose I have downloaded several pciture of it from the net.

It would help a LOT if I could set them as background picture while generating the mesh in 3D view.

Is this possible and… HOW ?

Thank you very much in advance !


In the 3D window menu press View->Background image.
