One of the ways I like to incorporate references into whatever I'm modeling is by inserting an image into the 3D space I'm working in. However, in order for the Texture Image I've added to show up, I have to go to "Material Preview" Viewport Shading for the entirety of my scene.

I'd like to only apply "Material Preview" Viewport Shading to my reference (so the texture displays) and stay in "Solid" viewport shading for the rest of my scene/whatever it is I'm making. Here's what I'm referring to:

Is this possible? If not I can make do modelling in "Material Preview" instead of "Solid" (like I have thus far).

Nevermind I figured it out! Go to "Shading" (little arrow next to Viewport Shading modes like "Solid" & "Material Preview" and select "Texture" for the object's "Color"
