Images getting linked into your drawing

So Ive made a drawing on autocad and have imported in .png images into my drawing. Though the images show up on my computer once I email it they dont show which obvioulsey means that there not linked to the memory in autocad just from the computer. Does anyone know how to link the images in??

"imported" means what? IMPORT command does not handle JPG files so plese explain using AutoCAd command names and functions.

 

Either send the referenced JPG files along (highly recommended, they are "linked" already), or explore using INSERTOBJ command to make the JPG files part of the DWG file (not recommended as this will bloat the size of your DWG something crazy usually).

 

ETRANSMIT command is designed to do the first: you should always use this command when sending thoers DWG files as it is designed to capture all this added content (and more) you can easy miss. Try it.
