How can i always show a background image?

Background image only seems to show in top/side/front view, which isn’t always the most op[imal behaviour

how can i get a background image to never vanish, and just stay there behind the model all the time?

Add an image to an empty

adding an image to an empty doesn’t seem to accomplish what i’m hoping for. that is, a 2D image that faces the camera. Glancing over the addon’s documentation doesn’t indicate any such thing either :frowning:
