I have a picture of a High Road that fits on the Mentoring Groups Layout, I would like to know if and how to use on AR PLEASE.
It is 100mm above the track, I think I have that covered.
I am thinking it may need to be changed to something that AR prefers



To insert a picture, please create a rectangle (or any surface) first. You can do this from the INSERT tab.

Now, select the rectangle by clicking on its outline.

The SURFACES tab appears. Here, click 'Load image...'.

Once loaded, you can scale or rotate the image.

THANKS very much David,
I have been able to load this picture to this Layout, but I might need to fix the picture, so there is no other items showing, also might need to change the format.
As well as this it might not load to here properly, however the upload is GREEN

ALSO GOOD NEWS I now have been able to work the LAYERS HERE


Although I have my PICTURE in place, it was NOT taken at the right angle. I was able to rotate it, I did save it as a JPG and a TIFF file whish are about the same size.

I am unable to place it at the right Height, being at 1000mm,

sitting over part of the TRACKS at 900.5mm,

sitting on Rubberized Screen Cloth, on top of the BASE at 900mm

The unfinished Wiring is 899mm

more later perhaps


If you select the surface the picture is on, you should be able to set its height.

Now have the picture at 1000mm, but not able to see in 3D, thinking it is only a picture and :) paper thin and not an OBJECT, it will not show up.
Or is there more to this, am I able to do something else, like taking a better picture and turn it into an OBJECT.
