Updating GE Tips to GE 4

Over the next few days, I will be re-writing and publishing some of the Google Earth tips I’ve written since this blog began that were based on GE 3. The changes will reflect differences based on the newer GE 4. Eventually, when GE 4 is no longer beta, I will change the GE Basics page to reflect only GE 4 tips (although the old page and stories will still be available for those who are unable to upgrade from GE 3 for whatever reason).
Even some of you regular GEB readers may find some useful tips. Oh, and feel free to add comments with other useful tips! The next blog entry is the first upgraded tip entry.

  1. Hello,
    I am lost with Google Earth. I signed up for a 7 day trials with Pro and hope to use it to get current aerial photos of a large property in Placerville California. I got the account setup but I do not understand where I have to login. There is no login field. And the large square on the right is black out . Please help. Can I get a real time aerial photo for the GE 4 satellite?
