Backdrops are images or objects placed in the SketchUp model background to provide context and fill in gaps. Backdrops range from city skylines, vegetated yards, to views outside of windows and settings specific to the model. This section describes two ways to add backdrops to a SketchUp model (Fig. 15.16, Fig. 15.17).
Other methods can be used to add backdrops. No one method is superior, and the use of some backdrops will depend on the user’s skill level (for example, knowing how to use Photoshop) and the desired result.
