How to add background images or reference pictures in Blender 2.8x

Assalamu’alaikum. Hi guys.

In this tutorial video, I want to show you how to place background images or reference pictures on the 3D viewport and also on a camera view inside Blender 2.8 or above. Essentially we’ll be using a new type of empty object in Blender called the “image object”. We will cover different ways to create “image object”. Then discuss each of the features more in-depth. And finally how to add background images in camera view which is a bit different than using the “image object”.

If you want to learn computer graphics software such as Photoshop, Krita, Illustrator, Blender, 3ds Max, SketchUp, and so on, from the very basics to the advanced level, you should definitely check out my courses on Udemy, or Skillshare. You can also check out my other courses here.

I hope this tutorial is useful, Wassalaamu'alaikum.
