.JP2 files

I am attempting to attach an image file (.jp2) to my drawing.  I am completely successful at getting the image attached, inserted, scaled correctly, etc.  However, I am only seeing a small part of the image.  Please see the attachment for a screen shot.  Does anyone know what's going on here and (preferably) how to fix it?  The original image is not clipped like this.  I did not use IMAGECLIP.  The screen shot was taken immediately after attaching the image to the drawing.

Try posting in the CIVIL forum (matches your AutoCAD version).

i am having a similiar problem with .jp2 files in ACAD 2008


The files go in, both as XRef and as insert; can set coordinates and scale OK


Only the top 1/2 of the image shows; the bottom 1/2 is blacked out


same result with multiple images


Images go into ArcView Ok


any help will be appreciated

The first thing that comes to my mind when I see this is that it may be related to video memory.  For some reason your system(s) are choking on the size of the image file.


As a test, and if you have software like GIMP, Photoshop, Elements, etc that can reduce the resolution and therefore the size of the image file, reduce it, save to a new filename, and try again.  If it's 600dpi, downsize and resave it as a 120 dpi file and repeat the insert.


If it works with a smaller file then you've confirmed a video card issue.
