I have added a background image to the world settings. However, it has disappeared from my 3D view and only shows when I view the scene from the camera. Does anyone know if there is something I can do to make it reappear?

camera view shows background

background not showing in 3D view

It's because you are in ortho view, so you will only see one pixel of the background image at a time (if you rotate the 3D view around, the background color should change).

Switch to perspective (Numpad 5), and it should appear normally.
