How to insert a JPEG file in drawing using Autocad 2007 LT

I used to work with Autocad 2002 and using the command "insert" "raster
image"to insert a JPEG file in drawing. However, recently, my company has
installed an Autocad 2007 LT, I discover that there is no "raster image"
under the "insert" command. Can anyone tell me how to insert a JPEG file in
drawing using Autocad 2007 LT?

Regards,
Brian

Classic Windows copy/paste works in all Windows applications... .

Open the JPG in an image viewer that allows you to select all.
Select all
copy to windows clipboard
leave app open
click over to LT
paste.

The IMAGE command is not enabled in LT. Use copy/paste as
Dean mentioned.

Using 2007 LT to insert an image (BMP in my case) I opened it in Paint, Select All, Copy, clicked over to Acad, Edit, Paste Special, Device Independant Bitmap. Otherwise, I would get a blank square pasted. I tried this with a JPEG file to start, pasted as I said, and it worked, although at LT's 256 colors limit.

See thread from 9.11.08 titled "Copy/pasted jpg not printing" - it might help.

well It took me a bit but after messing with some of the other progrmas that autodesk has, I found this pretty easy

 

step one

* go to the insert drop down on you menu bar it should be on top.

 

step two

go to the  External Refernces  in which it should pull up another little screen with the dwg and if you havent allready jpg's that are currnetly there.

 

step three

right click and choose  Attach Image...

attach means insert.

 

you will have to manually search for you image but if your like me and I drop everything on my desktop after that its up to you.
