I have a .jpg screenshot of a Google-Earth Pro view and see that r.in.gdal

command line for the task.

On the GE view I recorded the geographic coordinates of four
readily-identifiable points and can put them in a v.in.ascii point file for

My web searches for the process of saving a GE view as an .kml file were
without success. That would be another option for importing the GE image and
using it as the background for additional layers outlining specific areas.

Pointers to appropriate modules is appreciated.
