Thanks Johnny,
Very helpful, did learn a lot I have been having some issues in trying to setup images, however I do have a question.

How do you set up images when the views are different sizes ?

For example I have a image of a plane, but the side view is smaller than the top view, I did play around for hours trying to work out how to get the side view the same size as the top.

how would I do this ?
thanks in advance

Not sure if Gimp has the ruler option, but it probably has. I use PaintShop Pro, it has a Ruler option which is handy when trying to scale reference images.

What I normally do is copy all the references to one big image, set the rulers to a prominent features on the first image and scale the others using the ruler points.

Sorry I have not been here in a while, I did not receive a notification email that someone had posted in this thread.
John is correct about scaling the images.
