Postby mourry » Fri Jun 18, 2010 8:44 pm

How do I use Google earth to get pictures of Ancient Roman Buildings? I'm doing a project on some of the building of rome and my teacher says she wants us to use google earth to find 3D pictures of the roman buildings. I downloaded google earth and i have to little yellow building and it tells me about them but i don't know ho to look inside the building or use pictures in a power point. can anyone help me?

I'm not quite clear on what you're trying to do, but on the lower left corner of the Google Earth Window, there's a small window titled "Layers"

Be sure that you have the boxes labeled "3D Buildings" checked.
Others to check are: "Borders and Labels", Places of Interest", Panoramio Photos" and "Terrain"

Unless someone has taken photos of the interiors and linked them with Panoramio, you won't be able to see inside.

As far as getting the images into Powerpoint, Zoom and tilt in so that the building's appearance is what you want. From GE's "Edit" menu, choose "Copy Image". Open Paint and paste the image into a new Paint document - give this a name and save it as a .jpg file.
