I imported a jpg picture to use a model copy. The problem is that I cannot get it to be in the background and my cube to be in the foreground. The cube continues to be in the background behind the picture. What gives?
I assume you loaded the jpg as an image plane attached to a camera. Check the image plane's attributes for one called 'depth.' Increase the 'depth' value and the image plane should sit properly behind the geometry in the scene.
