How to embed a raster image with a DWG drawing?

A - answer The IMAGE command only links the 'inserted' raster images externally (like Xref). To embed them to the drawing use Paste from Windows Clipboard or Insert of OLE object.

Display your raster image in a viewer (e.g. Irfanview), choose Copy and in AutoCAD use Edit > Paste (PASTECLIP). You can also run the INSERTOBJ command and insert your bitmap picture as an OLE object. (OLE objects cannot be nested in blocks.)

Please note that the external referencing of raster images is a much more effective method. To transfer a complete DWG drawing together with all externally referenced files always use the eTransmit function.

An effective mix of the methods is represented in the Raster Design functionality - see Tip 5535.
