Using a Scene from Google Street View

This is a step-by-step guide to getting a scene from Google's Street View for use as a background scene within Visualise2D.

Result: background scene within Visualise2D

Step-by-step Guide:

Go to Street View on Google Maps and find the scene you wish to use.

With the scene displayed, either remove the map section or in this example, view full screen by clicking on the symbol in the top right corner to the left of the close button.

Once done, copy the scene by pressing the print screen button on your keyboard - you may need to make sure the near adjacent F Lock key is off.

The next step is to save the copied scene. The simplest way to do this is to use the software 'Paint' within All Programs > Accessories.

Once open, go to Edit then Paste

With the scene being displayed, go to File then Save As.

Finally but most importantly, save the scene as a JPEG.

Now it is a case of selecting the saved scene from within Visualise2D.
