The following commands rasterize the selected vector and raster data onto underlying raster images. Selection can consist of:

·         raster images;

·         raster selection;

·         vector data.

When these rasterization commands are executed, only the part of the selection that is located within the bounds of the underlying image is rasterized. The part of the selection outside the destination image bounds is ignored.

The commands will rasterize the selection to all underlying visible images located on unlocked layers.



Add selected data to raster image.
