Thread: Saving an image from sketchup???

    Saving an image from sketchup???

    I'm a rookie at sketchup. I'm trying to save a picture of a design, so I can email it to a potential customer. The customer doesn't have sketchup, so I need to convert a pic of the project to a 2-D JPEG. All the "save" options on sketchup seem to save it in the sketchup program. I see people post pics from sketchup all the time. How do you do it, pray tell?

    Barry,
    from the File menu with your model open to the view you want to show

    Select [Export] then [2d Graphic] that will open a 'save as' window, name your file and select the type of image... jpeg would probably be safest as you said.

    Thanks Ned!! I thought I had tried that option, but I guess not, it worked like a charm.
