I am trying to add an image as a plane in Blender 3.0 but I can't find how. I have tried shift + A but I can add images only as reference or background. What is the procedure in Blender 3.0 in earlier versions there was an option for it.

What I am trying to do is to render an image in Blender 3.0.

    $\begingroup$ It's a built-in addon. Search for 'Images as planes' in Preferences > Edit > Addons tab. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ That has always been a Blender-supplied addon right back to at least Blender version 2.8.3 so I guess it was enabled in the dim and distant past in the version you were previously using. I guess that you installed 3.0 from scratch rather than updating from your previous Blender version because otherwise the addon settings would have been transferred automatically. $\endgroup$

That has always been a built-in addon in Blender right back to version 2.8x. For a new installation of Blender it may not be enabled by default so go to Edit > Preferences > Addons tab, type 'Images' into the search field, and check Import Export:Images as Planes as shown below.

enter image description here

The option will then appear on the main Add menu and the ⇧ Shift-A menu.
