Default Shortcut: None

Menu Path: Display > Select Viewport Image


The Select Viewport Image command will select the background image, if any, in the current viewport, allowing you to edit its position, orientation, and size with the standard geometry manipulators or the numerical editor.

To help avoid accidental selection while modeling, you cannot select a viewport background image directly by clicking on it. This function is the only way to select a background image. Once selected, the image can be edited using the regular Move, Rotate, Scale, and Universal manipulators (see Manipulator Tool), allowing you to position it as desired. It can also be edited with the Numerical Editor for precise positioning.
