Plane texture

I am a complete beginner to blender so please bear with me…:no:
I am wanting to place a texture on a plane, which is an image. I have placed it within the world preview under textures but it is not appearing on my plane in the render current frame.
How would I go about doing this?

Textures can be loaded for the World (background), for lamps, for brushes, and for Materials. You need your image leaded as a Texture for your Material. To do so, select your plane, press F6, and then add a new texture, set to Image, and select the image you want to have on the plane. For more information on image textures see:
