How do I add a background picture?

I tried adding a background picture, but when I render it… it doesn’t appear anywhere.
I did manage to add a picture… but I can only see it through my camera?

help please?

Hi,

There are two ways:

  1. Adding a plane to the bottom of your scene. After applying it a material, load your picture through the UV Editor and unwrap the plane.
  2. Before loading the image, link it to the world material as a texture node.
