#243 Display background image

Rendering (24)

I was just wondering if it would be possible to add a new feature to the new Avogadro that you guys are releasing in the near future?

With Avogadro 1.0.3, i can go to - View, Set background color, and i can change the background color. But what i would love is the option to add a background image from a JPG or PNG file on my computer. Would this be possible?

The idea is that currently i can export the molecule image with a black or white or red background for instance. But i would like to be able to draw my molecule from scratch on top of a background image. I want my molecules to "fit into" and match other chemical and molecular images i have produced with other software. Then i would be exporting my background image with the Avogadro molecule superimposed on top of the background image.

If your not too busy, this would be a nice feature. But i understand if your too busy fixing other bugs.

Thank you,
