Regarding the following thread within the Autodesk Discussion Groups -
The other day we experienced/noticed a very similar problem, some CAD PC's when working within AutoCAD allow the attachment of GIF's via the Image command, some don't....
The following Technical Documents/Article indicate that AutoCAD supports the functionality of attaching GIF images -
ID: TS20202 - Supported raster file formats
ID: TS69570 - Comparison of raster images in AutoCAD® Release 14 and later releases to AutoCAD Release 13

The following Article indicates that AutoCAD does *not* support the functionality of attaching GIF images -
All about Images
Confused? I am <:)
We found that a CAD PC with just vanilla AutoCAD installed does *not* allow GIF images to be attached.
We have since found that if we install LDT on the CAD PC that contained vanilla AutoCAD (ie 2 Autodesk products installed side-by-side) the functionality of attaching GIF images within AutoCAD becomes available (makes sense as AutoCAD is at the core of LDT). Therefore it seems LDT installs/switches_on something that enables the attaching of GIF images.
Am I correct with the above or should vanilla AutoCAD have the functionality of attaching GIF images (as stated on the Autodesk web site).
