Hello everyone, i am pretty new in archicad and i am trying to figure out how to import custom pictures to show as art on the renderings. Ive read you need to put the images in the same folder and i have done that but an error appears when i render. Does anyone have any specific instructions?

thank you very much for your time

Hi Jason,
We need a little more information. What is the error message?
What steps are you using to place the image in the model?

I see you in clude your AC version in the title. Instead, why don't you add it to your profile along with your OS as you see others here do.

Hi jason

you need to load the image in your ArchiCAD library.

Then in the picture object's settings you need to enter the image files name into the custom image field.
Is that what your trying to achieve?

Hey guys, thanks for your quick reply.

I reloaded the images and it did work. thanks for your time, i really appreciate it as i know that questions from new users might seem stupid for experienced members.

Thanks again.

I am encountering the same problem as Jason T.

Where in the library do the images get uploaded to. Should I use a designated folder? Thanks.

They just need to be in a loaded library. Typically I would place them in a folder specific to the project for with they are being used and load that folder from the Library Manager. If you have already done this you may just need to reload the libraries.
