Imports an image for display on one of the main planes (including offset).


Click on Image Import.png.
A dialogue box will open asking you for the file name.
Afterwards you will be presented with the standard-FreeCAD-dialogue asking for the orientation of the image.



Selecting the image in the tree view and activating its data-tab in the property view lets you select size
and orientation of the image. Specifying a small offset of 0,1 mm on import will make it easier to trace the image.
