With the CAD Studio's utility - GeoRefImg - you can automatically place georeferenced raster files (pictures) also in AutoCAD or Architectural Desktop (this correlation functionality is by default available only in AutoCAD Map, Civil3D and Raster Design).
Any selected raster image inserted in your drawing (TIF, JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP, CIT, ECW, SID formats) accompanied with a World file is automatically repositioned to its proper position (coordinates), scale and rotation.
GeoRefImg prompts to select objects (images) and then performs the repositioning and scaling controlled by the World files (TFW, JGW, PGW, GFW, BPW, CTW, EWW, WLD...). World files are searched in the folders of the original raster file (TIFF, JPEG, PNG...). See also the Tip 3515.
Just APPLOAD the VLX file and type the GeoRefImg command.
