Hello all,

Thanks for a very useful forum and thanks to all who are sharing their knowledge here!
have been using the free version of SU for about a month and am getting the hang of basic modeling.
i am modeling an addition to a church and would like to show it on an image from google earth.
i open google earth and zoom to the site, then in SU, under tools - google earth- i select "get current view"
the image imported is a lower resolution and in greyscale, not color like what i am looking at in earth.
i have not been able to find any settings to adjust the quality of the import from google earth.
thanks in advance for any clues!

Welcome to the forum, Mike.

Getting the image from GE is always going to be B&W, it's still useful for geolocating your model and getting terrain. Here's a bookmark I've got for adding color to your GE terrains in SU, hope it helps...
