How do i use background images in blender 2.5 ?

Hi guys.

I’m working on a human model and i want to use a reference image to help me model. How do i use a background reference image in blender 2.5?:no:

Help is appreciated :yes:

3D View->Properties panel (‘N’ to show if it’s hidden)->Background Images. Check the box to start using a background and click ‘Add Image’. In the new subpanel that appears you can choose the image to use and also which view it applies to.

Best wishes,
Matthew
