Read in another post: AutoCAD doesn't (yet) include image files in the drawing itself. Your best bet is to use ETRANSMIT, which puts all files needed in a ZIPped folder: photos, fonts, XREFs, etc.
I have a huge set of drawings with many photos of existing conditions. When I transmit them to a colleague, none of the images are referenced. They are all looking for the path on my computer.
Please enable images to be pathed and bound independently, liek dwg x-refs. ("Insertobj" seems to only inserts a thumbnail, not the image.)
This doesn't work for me.
If I cut and paste the image the path still appears on the external references palette.
Am I missing something?
