View Full Version : Remove link from inserted raster images
2004-09-29, 10:03 PM
I'm in great need of a way to remove the link from inserted raster images, due to a complex file management system. I will still need to be able to modify the raster, I just want the image to reside in the drawing file itself. Is this possible?
Thanks for anyones help on this.

In short NO, images can not be loaded into a
drawing like blocks.

Check out the following Submission # EX001348 by Cecelia Dailey on the AUGI Exchange Page -
AUGI Exchange Search Page (http://www.augi.com/exchange/search.asp?page=415)
The above document gives clear instructions on how to embed an image file into an AutoCAD drawing file (is kind of work around, but definitely works very well).
Have a good one, Mike

Thanks for your help. I tried the OLE procedure that Celie recommends, unfortunately there are two problems that came up. First was that im inserting a .CAL file and that was not supported with OLE so I wrote it to a BMP. Then the second problem came up, I could not edit it with Raster Design. What do you think, any other ideas?

As far as I'm aware there is no other workaround for embedding an image file into a drawing file.... would gladly like to hear differently.
Have a good one, mike

Thanks for the try, maybe it will end up on Raster Design's Wish List
