Hi All,


I hope you can help. When I add an image to my sketch the main body then appears "of the ground" as you van see from the attached screen shot. The shadow and reflection is distant. The minute I remove the instead image the object and the shadow touch again as it should be... I'm puzzled. 


Can anyone help ?

I found the solution so I'll post the reply > Using the Decal function to attache the image to the object will eliminate the problem.
