Summary0000897: Map a 2D image onto the face of a 3D object
DescriptionThe ability to take a Jpg or png file and map it onto just one face of a 3D object.

This would be useful for things like making labels, or placing images onto the top and bottom of an unpopulated circuit board to give it a life-like appearance.

It would be helpful if the image could:
  1 be rotated at any angle
  2 be scaled to any value
  3 be positioned horz/vertically
  4 be autocentered with the click of a checkbox
  5 be mirrored (for placing images on the bottoms of things)

Perhaps later on (way later ;-) ) the mapping could go beyond just working on flat planes.
Ex. If I had a 3D scanned image of a persons head & I had a picture of the front of their face, ideally I would like to map the image onto the front of the 3D head (through just horizontal projection or something?).
