Import picture

Recommended Posts

I had never ground swimming pool that I had filled so now I have a big patio that's fenced in and I would like to be able to import a picture I took of it so I can add all the elements like a fire pit, landscaping, etc. etc.

Did you look in the manual?

It should all be covered there.

If I understand correctly, you might be better served using some kind of photoshop software... instead of a CAD program, to see a visualization of your new patio area.

I did look in the manual but I could not find it. What section would it be in? Are there any video tutorials on this?

What version of software are you using Cripp? You should be able to open your user library and Right Click New> Backdrop... select .jpg file and import then go to your perspective view of your Terrain perimeter apply to background and fit the two together. This will only work if you are happy viewing the entire project from the original camera position or you can take more pictures when that pile of bricks gets cleaned up. Ideally you would need a 360  panoramic image but I assume that is not within the budget of your project. Build whatever you like onto the terrain perimeter and plant some grass.

Ah...a search for "import picture" should do it.

Thanks I'll try that, I like what you did with the picture! I'm using X7

Please forgive my post above, I assumed you were trying to do something a little more sexier than just wanting to add a backdrop.
