select the surface of the geometry plane.
Tools>Surface Selection, RMB on the surface

Go to your surfaces tab
If it’s not on the screen: Window>Panes>Surfaces
Select the details tab before the diffuse color, click browse, browse to your image.

Adding an image to a surface is very simple.  To get it looking good requires a bit more work!  Getting it the image to rotate might need you to look at some the animation scripts mjcCasual has produced.  If it’s ‘just’ the plane you want to rotate then the usual animation tools should handle that for you.
Back to getting the image on ... first off, you’ll need your jpeg image.  Then you’ll need the surface.  If you’re creating something from scratch just create a DAZ primitive plane.  By default that will add as a square but you can scale X and Z scales to change the shape to rectangular (you’ll want the same ratio as your image).  In the Surfaces tab, with the plane selected, click on the little square to the left of Diffuse Color and then choose Browse from the menu that appears.  Browse to where you saved your jpeg and select it.
And that is the basics.  I’ve just done exactly this for my latest 2 renders on deviantART to create a couple of notes/flyers.
