In Scene Mode, look under Settings > Environment.
In the Environment Panel select 'image' and load your image 'File'.
It will be visible in the Camera View only.

You could also load your image as a texture and apply it on a plane in 'Object mode'.
Then import it as an object in 'Scene Mode'. 

Hope this helps.

in Object mode, I choose Build> Preference image, then I load my image. Then I proceed to the scene mode, Build> Add object. Then I choose the image that I have load just now. Here, I found that the image is invisible, just a rectangular box appear on the plane.

Anyone an help?

Hmmmm...
I explained how to use a background image in a scene.
Did you not try that ?
The 'Reference image' is only used in 'Object mode' as a guide for modeling.

I think you might want to try reading the Manual first, before you go any further.
