Embed Images in AutoCAD file

To insert a raster image into a DWG file so that there is no need for an external image file:

  1. Open the raster image in an image editing application, such as Microsoft® Paint.
  2. Click Edit menu > Select All, or press CTRL+A.
  3. Click Edit menu > Copy, or press CTRL+C.
  4. In AutoCAD, click Edit menu > Paste Special.
  5. In the Paste Special dialog box, select the options Paste and Picture (Metafile) and then click OK.
  6. Place the image in the drawing.

The raster image will be embedded in the DWG file as an OLE object and will be saved completely within the DWG file.
