Not too long ago one of our customer
asked me this question, how can I bind a raster image in AutoCAD?... As you
probably already know raster images can only be referenced into AutoCAD
drawings. If you send the drawing to someone else, you must send the image file
also, if not you will end up with a broken reference.
One way to get it done is inserting the image as an OLE object.
Go to the Insert Tab and look for OLE Object or just type INSERTOBJ on the command line.
Choose "Create New", and then choose "Paintbrush Picture".
In Paintbrush, choose from the ribbons -> Paste, then Paste from...
Close Paint and save your AutoCAD drawing.
