Hi, I am a Sketchup beginner using the software for a campus planning internship, and I’m making tree cutouts that look like the image below:
My question is, how do I get rid of the white background? The image that I’m using is in JPEG format and has a transparent background otherwise, but when I import it as a texture, it has the white background again. To be clear, I’m first importing the photo as an image, outlining it using freehand, and then cutting it out and reimporting the image as a texture. I know this seems like a longwinded process but I want this file to be as small as possible for rendering reasons, due to the large amount of trees I will need. Any tips are appreciated, thanks!
