You can insert images into the drawing. The list of supported raster formats is displayed in the Raster file formats section of the Options dialog box (the Tools menu Options):

Raster images can be referenced and placed in drawing files but, like external references, they are not actually part of the drawing file. The image is linked to the drawing file through a path name. Linked image paths can be changed or removed at any time.

Once you've attached an image, you can reattach it multiple times, treating it as if it were a block. Each insertion has its own clip boundary and its own settings for brightness, contrast, fade, and transparency.

You can insert in the drawing a number of raster image files with the same name but different content. In such a case, a sequence number will automatically be added to the names of such images via an underscore sign “_” starting with 1.

To insert a raster image, specify the necessary options in the opened Insert Raster Image dialog box.

Parameters:

Name:

Includes the list of names of the inserted images.

Opens the Insert Raster Image dialog box.

Path type:

Sets the way to describe the location of the source file for the raster image insertion. Dropdown list contains several variants:

·         Full path (absolute);

·         Relative path;

·         No path.

For more information on specifying a path, see the Insert External Reference section.
