The simple Stuff : draw a Image to Screen

hi there,

i guess ths was discussed from time to time, but i cant find a simple solution for this one.
I would like to draw a img on the screen for some kind of menue background or pause screen.
and of course this img should not be affeccted by light or othe stuff from my 3d space; but half transparent so i can see the world behind it.
but the only way i can think of so far is draw a plane and put the img as a texture on it.
but thats seems to bo the wrong way.
is it too easy that i can´t think of it ?

thanx for a hint, or small script.


but thats seems to bo the wrong way.

Why does this seem to be the wrong way? That’s how everyone else does it.
