Here we have activated the “Adjustments” menu (directly to the right of the transparency slider) which presents additional controls for each reference image. The folder icon to the left of each reference allows you to quickly load in a different image for that reference. The button to the right of the folder displays the reference type as well as doubles as a quick button for viewing the reference in orthographic view.

The recycle-looking button quickly rotates each reference image around 90 degrees (so pressing it four times does a full loop). The left/right arrows button to the right of that mirrors the reference image. The eye button hides each reference image. The “Default” drop-down controls occlusion settings for each reference and the dropdown next to that controls the visibility of each reference image when viewed from the front, back, or both. The little arrow underneath the folder icon opens up a third set of even more extensive adjustment options for each reference image.

Power Refs makes it easy to hide individual reference images while in Perspective or Orthographic views. Here we’re hiding all images while in Perspective View, but below all of the same reference images will be visible when viewed in Orthographic View, unless we disable one or more of them as well.

The same reference images we disabled above while in Perspective View are visible while in Orthographic view unless we disable one or more of them while in Orthographic View. This allows you to quickly adapt your reference images to your needs without them ever getting in your way.

Pressing the triangle button under each folder icon displays an additional set of adjustment controls for each reference image. You can adjust the location and scale of each reference and/or its counterpart reference on its other side.
