Background in 3dview?

Hi, I’ve been searching through the internet and have read some tutorials but I still cannot find my answer. I found it, but for a older version of blender and I need to find it out for the newest version. What I’m trying to figure out how to do is have a background in 3dview, like in this video tutorial:

So, does anyone know how to do this in the latest version of blender?

Hi Edgar! Instead of searching the internet, you might try searching this forum. Questions like yours come up time and again, and often in a thread you can find various other approaches to solving one simple problem. This time, I’ll just tell you View > Background Image > Choose directory/file/image, and you’re away :slight_smile:

And don’t forget to be in front/side/top view to see the image.
