So I'm trying to model using a background image and I really need the front face of the image to be facing the same direction as the z axis.

  • $\begingroup$ From your quite short description it seems that you'd like to see background image in the Top Ortho preset view (Numpad7). Setup the background image properly (image settings > Axis > Top or Bottom) or add image empty or Image as Plane. See blender.stackexchange.com/questions/118/… $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ you can make the background image appear only in a specific axis. By default is set to all views but you can make it be top, bottom, front, back, left right or camera. $\endgroup$
