Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Modeling to photographic reference, part of SketchUp: Tips & Tricks.
- [Instructor] Hi, I'm George Mistry.…And today we're going to take a look at how to use photographs…as reference in SketchUp.…And specifically, we're going to use the…match photo feature.…So, I'm going to take this image here,…and we're going to take the building in the center of this…image, and we're going to match the perspective of…the scene, and then go ahead and…duplicate the shape of this building in SketchUp.…So I'm going to start off by using the match photo feature.…
Now, on the Mac, you'll find it under window and you'll…find a match photo option.…On the PC, you'll find it in the default tray,…and we have a match photo option here, and…we just want to make sure it's checked.…And then we can go over into our default tray,…and we should have match photo.…So however you open it, the interface should look…pretty much like this.…Now the interface is grade out at the start.…The only option here is this little plus sign,…so all we have to do is go new match photo and hit plus.…
And that allows us to bring that photograph into the scene.…
