Learn how to place textures interactively within SketchUp. In this video, George imports a bitmap image and then applies it to an object, interactively adjusting it to one part of an object. George then takes resulting material and uses it to texture the entire object. Another bitmap is imported and applied to the object as a decal.

- [Narrator] Now, let's take a look at how to import images,…both as image files, and as textures.…Now here I have a simple box,…and let's say I wanted to apply a wood texture to.…Well, I could certainly create a material…and guess at the dimensions,…or I could do it interactively,…and a lot of times this is an easier way…to create textures.…So, I'm going to go ahead and just do a file, import.…And in my chapter eight folder,…I have a file here called knotty pine dot j peg.…
Now, I need to make sure that I'm here…on all supported image types,…in order to show the images and select it.…And then the second menu here is,…we've got a couple of options here,…use as image, use as texture,…or use as matched photo.…I'm going to use this as a texture.…So, I'm actually going to create a material.…So, I'm going to select import,…and what it does is it brings up this image,…and I can place it anywhere on any piece of geometry,…and then if I left click and drag,…I can scale it.…
So let's say I wanted to scale it just the size of that,…
