Go into the orthographic view you want the image to face towards, and in the viewport, go to:

View>Image plane> import image

then select the file you wish to have as an image plane.
Do the same for the other views you have.

Also, I don't know if others have this problem. But when I have tried setting up the references I would get weird camera issues where the camera would get stuck and I would have other weird anomalies.

So, to solve this, I read that it was best to create a duplicate set of cameras for all the original cameras.

Then insert the reference images into the duplicate cameras, and then select those as your standard views for each different view.
