I’ve been using imported screenshots (.png) of various fireplaces taken from manufacturer websites to help in choosing the right fireplace and making related design decisions. Although I manage to place, orient, and size the pics adequately for rough viewing, I find the images difficult to select individually to manage visibility (using hide) if I stack them on top of each other. Tagging them helps, but I wonder if there is a better way? I don’t think i want to deal with them as textures in this case, or do I? (I rarely use image textures–partly because I find the texture tools finicky to work with and it just isn’t a priority for me).
This isn’t something I want to spend a lot of time on other than for occasional product placement testing, but if there are some simple best practices I’m overlooking, I’de be grateful for any tips. (Yes, I’ve searched the web and forum, but only saw basic importing and orienting tips).
Also, where can I find these images in the Sketchup menus or in my Mac file structure if i want to purge them? I don’t see them in Outliner or Components (nor would I expect to unless I could somehow make it a group or component. If I could, I could use the Outliner for controlling visibility). If I delete them on screen, are they purged from the model, or do they still live somewhere? I need to trim some fat. Thanks in advance!
