    Seems that saving as .png is not the right thing to do. Have uploaded them again as jpegs and (apart from being much smaller files) they look ok. They were also ok as pdfs. Can you remove black background photos please? I can't seem to.

    Is the background transparent Mike...hence why they appear correct when uploaded to the latest projects?

    Seems to be saving as a .png problem. Saving as .jpg ok. Will try again.

    Even more confused now. Pictures in 'Latest member projects' show the problem I have with the sketchup proposal drawings that I have just uploaded - the background is black. In the forum and in my pictures they are as expected with white background. Any ideas please??

    Now I am confused. After checking the link it looks fine. May be at this end there is a hardware/software problem.

    Just getting to grips with SU 2013 pro after 2 years with SU 8. Having a few hiccups, wonder if any one can help; from Layout I can export as a pdf (with minor little niggles that I am sure will be ironed out with use) but if I try to export as an image then the SU entity and pictures are as they should but the background (paper) is dark - which leaves notes illegible. I am attaching a file to show problem.0608Goudie%20A3%20with%20title%20block%20with%20eng%20style_1.png Thanks

  • I've just done a trail video using SketchUp to create the model, followed by rendering software and then movie making software (rather than just capturing SU scene animation). It's my first attempt and I can already see that I need to work on smoothing out the camera movement, but I'd appreciate any other suggestions too please. Thanks.

  • 3 years ago I discovered Sketchup, while I was still a daily AutoCAD user. Six months after its discovery I have never used AutoCAD since! What's more, I'm really enjoying modelling these days and can knock out things like the attached in about a tenth of the time A/cad would've taken me (and that is no exaggeration!):

    I have heard recently of a few V/works users switching their allegiance to SU too, which I find very interesting.

  • I think after much to-ing and fro-ing over various types of software, that I'm now beginning to settle with what I've now got. I took this sketch...

    and turned it into...

    and...

    ... plus video walk-throughs. I'm hoping though, that instead of Landscapers thinking that I want them to sell my service, that they instead use it as a tool to help sell theirs! So far it is proving difficult to convince some of the more "old school" chaps of this - I welcome any suggestions.

  • Hi, I have taught myself SketchUp, to a limited level. I just wondered if others have done the same ? and what courses if any , garden designers have found helpful ? I have also watched the SktechUp tutorials ?

    Regards
