You can import raster images to a project to use as background images or as visual aids needed during the creation of a model. By default, images are imported behind the model and annotation symbols; however, you can change the display order. You can import images into 2D views only.
You can import images using the Image tool or by dragging and dropping them from Windows® Explorer.
