    Thanks Team Gopher! I cannot tell you how much I appreciate all of your helpful posts! You are a real addition to this site. One of my customers just called Sunday night wanting tons of work done. Well when I say tons, I mean 3-4k (alot for a homeowner around here I guess). So it's off to the drawing board.

    It can be done.....but, It really looks cheezy. It turns out looking like a picture of a house standing in a field with some landscaping in front of it. It is not 3D. I designed my home landscaping with Punch but the one with the pic of my house was nowhere worth the trouble it took to make it. The pic has to be trimmed to just the house with now sky or background around it. Basically a large pain in the butt.:dizzy:

    I have that same program and wasted a lot of time trying to figure it out and make it do the things I wanted it to do. I finally accepted the fact that I wasted my money as it sits a little closer to the trash can each time I re-organize my desk. I thought it was just me.....nice to know otherwise!

    There's a number on the box to send this piece of crap back to for your money back. Thats what I did! Resign to the fact that ierra is better and if you want to do more than that open up the checkbook.

    throw your punch software in the garbage and get ProLandscape9.0. Its worth every penny.
