How Do I Use Webtoons in SketchUp?

Webtoons are a popular way to create and share comics online. With their unique vertical scrolling format, they provide an immersive reading experience for users. If you’re a SketchUp user looking to incorporate webtoons into your designs, this tutorial will guide you through the process.

Step 1: Create a Scene

Before you can start using webtoons in SketchUp, you need to have a scene ready. A scene in SketchUp represents a specific view of your 3D model.

To create a new scene, go to the “Camera” menu and select “Add Scene.” Give it a descriptive name that helps you remember what it represents.

Step 2: Export as Images

To use webtoons in SketchUp, we need to export our scenes as images. This will allow us to work with them in other applications later on.

To export an image of your scene, go to the “File” menu and select “Export” > “2D Graphic.” Choose a suitable file format (such as PNG or JPEG) and save it to your desired location.


If you want higher resolution images for your webtoon, consider adjusting the image size settings before exporting. You can do this by going to “Window” > “Model Info” > “Paper Space” and adjusting the dimensions accordingly.

Step 3: Prepare Your Images

Now that we have our exported images, let’s prepare them for use in our webtoon. Open your favorite image editing software (such as Photoshop or GIMP) and open the exported image files one by one.


If you don’t have access to professional image editing software, there are several free online tools available that can help you make basic edits to your images.

Step 4: Crop and Resize

In the image editing software, crop the images to remove any unnecessary parts. This will help focus the viewer’s attention on the important elements of your webtoon. Additionally, resize the images to ensure consistency in their dimensions.


When resizing your images, make sure to maintain their aspect ratio to avoid distortion. This can usually be done by holding down the Shift key while dragging the corner of the image.

Step 5: Add Text and Speech Bubbles

Now it’s time to add text and speech bubbles to your webtoon. Using your image editing software, choose a suitable font and size for your text. You can use a bold font for emphasis or an underlined font for important information.


If you want to make your text stand out even more, consider using different colors or applying drop shadows.

Step 6: Organize Your Webtoon

To create a visually engaging webtoon, it’s essential to organize your scenes in a logical order. Consider using numbered lists or bullet points to indicate the sequence of events.

  • Introduction: Start with an introductory scene that sets the stage for your story.
  • Main Story: Present the main events of your webtoon in sequential order. Use subheaders like “Chapter 1,” “Chapter 2,” etc., for easy navigation.
  • Climax: Build up to a thrilling climax in your story, making sure to engage your readers.
  • Conclusion: Wrap up your webtoon with a satisfying ending.

Step 7: Publish and Share

Once you’re satisfied with your webtoon, it’s time to publish and share it with the world. There are various platforms available where you can upload and showcase your webtoon, such as Webtoon, Tapas, or even your personal website.


Promote your webtoon on social media platforms and engage with your readers to build a loyal following.

With these steps, you now have the knowledge to use webtoons in SketchUp effectively. Remember to let your creativity flow and experiment with different storytelling techniques to create unique and captivating webtoons. Happy designing!
