2D image transfer from Sketchup to folder

The 2D image changes to a different format after the transfer to the folder, which will transfer to photoshop for editing. But the image in Sketchup changes the format preventing transfer from the folder. I tried the components tray with the option of “Save as”. And I also tried export under file menu.

When you edit a PNG file that has been saved out of a SketchUp textured material, e.g. using Photoshop, you should ensure that when you save any changes it is still a PNG [for example NOT as a JPG file].
SketchUp should then reuse the edited PNG as that material’s texture.

If that doesn’t work the edited image file should still be in your Temp folder [where you were working to edit it.
You can always edit the material to use a different image file, so choose the edited one and you should be back on track…

Thanks for the help. The png file won’t transfer from the folder on my computer to Adobe photoshop, where I will edit the image with some addional colors. It is already a png file in Sketchup, originally from placemaker a separate software. The uploaded image shows the current format which is png image of a tree. The edit will be to add snow colors. The only problem is transfering the file from the folder to photoshop program. Once it is in photoshop the editing is simple.

I must assume that you have set your image-editor path up correctly in your menu item Windows > Preferences > Applications > Default Image Editor…
Does your Temp folder path used have sufficient permissions to allow other apps like Photoshop access ?
The process works for me [I use Gimp], but if I choose to overwrite a file SketchUp won’t use it, I must ‘export’ it, then it updates in SketchUp OK…

I’ll check to see if the image–editor path is adjusted the way it should be. Sorry, I’m a little unfamiliar with this process of it. I’ll research it and see if it works, by checking the preferences, temp folder path and photoshop access. Thanks again !!
