Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video The image generator, part of Learning Tinkercad.
- The Image Generator tool is a great way to…incorporate graphic files into your project.…We're already on the Featured Shape Generators menu,…and I'll scroll down to find the Image Generator and…click and drag it to the Workplane.…I'll use the shortcut key F to focus.…So I have two options.…I can either drag a picture into this window or…choose one from my files, and that's what I'm gong to do.…In the Exercise Files, you'll find Greyscale.jpg, and open.…
I'll just orbit around so you can see a little bit better.…I just show you this to emphasize the black parts of…this image are the deepest, and the lightest parts of…the image are the shallowest.…Andsthat's the default behavior when you…bring a raster image into this tool.…Okay, let's try this with a photograph.…So we'll choose Change, and I'll choose Orange Daisy,…and click Open.…Alright, so now our daisy is brought into the space.…
We can do a few things to this image.…We can choose to adjust here on the side,…we can scale it bigger and smaller and…then click on the image to sort of reframe that.…
