# Unable to import image as plane

I'm new to Blender. I've watched some tutorials on adding an image as a plane, but it is not working for me. Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

I have activated the add-on. I select "add image as plane" from the file menu. I select the file I want to import. These are the settings I'm using:

When I hit the button to import the image it goes back to the project, but there is no plane, no image. I doesn't change anything. I've tried looking in all views, top, front, etc. I've tried in both ortho and perspective views. There's nothing there.

What am I doing wrong?

I'm using version 2.79b on windows 10. The file I'm trying to import is a .jpg, 207kb, I've tried it as a .bmp also.

• There should be a plane. Did you look for it in the Outliner? Deleting the addon from %appdata%\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.79\scripts\addons and reinstalling it might help. If it doesn't, could you check for any error messages in the Info panel (drag the main Blender's header with 'File', 'Render', 'Window', 'Help' menus down to see it) or in the console(Window->Toggle System Console)? – Martynas Žiemys Aug 13 '18 at 5:14
• @MartinZ I don't see it in the Outliner. The System console just has the following Read prefs: C:\Users\tommc\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.79\config\userpref.blend found bundled python: C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.79\python – Tom Aug 14 '18 at 1:39
