Using an image as part of an assembly?

As part of an assembly I am preparing, I'd like to add a picture so it complements the assembly (a frame with a person, for example). Can this be done somehow?

Note: I do not want to use the picture as a template for a draft because the image is somewhat elaborated and is just to give perspective on how my assembly would look like if built and holdind such picture.

    If I'm understanding you correctly this sounds like something you would do using a rendering software, I recommend trying a rendering software from one of our partners from the app store. They all have a free trial or offering.

    I would like to do this also... it is available in other 3D cad packages already. E.G. SolidEdge allows you to place the image on a particular surface of a part. The only way I can make this work for now, is to make sketch with the image and keep it visible in the Part Studio. Not ideal and does not transfer to the assembly.

    Decals would be nice feature in part studio and assembly, it is not convenient to render half finished product just to get image in..
