Want background image behind my game.

Greetings,

I’m trying to find out if there’s an easy way to set a background image that’s rendered behind my actual game geometry. Essentially I have a square game board that is in use in the middle of the screen, but there’s just black space around it. I’d like to be able to load up different images to have displayed behind my game board. I really don’t want to make this a 3D object with a texture that’s placed behind my geometry as I don’t want the image to move if I move the camera around.

Tried googling, but didn’t come up with anything.

Can’t tell you how to exactly do this, but look up HDRI imaging. You should be able to use that as your skybox texture. Just don’t use it for lighting.
