Talking Reference Pics Help

Hi everyone,
I'm sorry if this is a completely stupid question, but I want to load orthographic images into the individual front, side etc views on my Maya screen to use as references as I'm modelling. I knew how to do this in 3DSMax, but how do I do it in Maya?

Thanks

Select the view that you want to load the pics in then go to View (in the viewport menu) imageplane -> Import image, then browse to the image you want to load and hit ok. Then repeat it for the other viewports.
