How come I loaded an image in the backdrop but it goes away when I load the object again?

The backdrop isn't part of the object. It is just a setting for the environment. When you start a new model it reverts to the default environment.

There are people who like to set up planes and apply the images as maps that they use as reference. These people usually come to LW from another application and that is their previous workflow.

Hi Dexter,

Thank you for your reply.

I think your advise is the best approach which I will apply.

You are right I recently moved from Maya but I'm loving LW as a whole app.

You can save/load the backdrops, just click on Presets on the Backdrop tab.
