Good evening everyone. I'm a person new to blender, and I was watching a few tutorials that would take me through the process of creating/rendering a creature design in 3d, and from what was shown, I would need to have a side profile sketch of the design to import into blender as a background reference. I've attempted to open the image a couple of the different ways, through accessing the backgroung images tab as was shown inthe tutorial, and by simply dragging and dropping the image into the program. I've also tried changing the format of the file between .jpg and .png, to little avail. Is there someone who could help me through this issue? I'll link the image in question below.
Select the image and look at the object data. You can see there are two checkboxes: Display Ortho and Display Persp. You can also set the transparency etc.
Also look in the scene collection and make sure the disable selection is not turned off (the white arrow). If you cant see this then click on the filter icon in the header.
