This question already has an answer here:

is there a method to store the settings of background images? I use them often as modeling reference in the viewport, but everytime I open up the blend-file all settings are gone:

Settings during work
Settings during work

enter image description here
Settings after restart

As long as you get the modeling done without a restart or changing the files, there is no problem. However it's annoying to replace all images over and over again.

Any ideas?

    $\begingroup$ Blender does store the user interface when you save the file, just make sure that on the user settings>file you use LoadUI so that when you re-open your file those settings are loaded. $\endgroup$ – cegaton Dec 14 '16 at 6:05

    $\begingroup$ @atek That is unnecessary. Blender saves a link to the image when the file is saved. If that isn't working then packing won't help. $\endgroup$ – Ray Mairlot Dec 14 '16 at 9:39
