New user photo match

Im brand new ive watched the tutorials. Im trying to photo match but cant figure out what to do with the red axis. Photo is from front not side. Can I use it. Im trying to add a concrete patio in our back yard.

Unfortunately that photo isn’t suitable for Match Photo. You need two vanishing points on the horizon to be able to do the setup in SketchUp.

You could import the image as a regular image, not Match Photo and draw the deck in front of it. I think I would get some measurements off the house and draw it from scratch, though. Maybe use the photo to create a texture to put on the geometry although it would be a fair amount of fussing to get it to fit correctly.
