Changing out Raster tif's other than deleting & Re-Inserting?

I do alot of copying of my dwg/tif to make my next set of files.  When one does that the dwg still remembers the last tif and will bring up that image inside of it.  So to be clear:

I create abc.dwg and abc.tif

I copy it to abc-demo.dwg and abc-demo.tif but abc-demo.dwg still remembers abc.tif.

The only way I have been able to bring in the abc-demo.tif is to delete the image, and insert the new one.


Please tell me there is some way to "edit" the properties somewhere to just change the filename within autocad to the new name.  I would have thought that the modify properties would have allowed one to "browse" to a different name and seems like the old autocad Image command would allow this.  But that command is missing now.


This is not just laziness, if I have to change or clean up the tif, to have it copied saves me work, also sometimes in resizing images from B size to D size make it nice to just copy the initial .dwg  I would like to be able to just browse to the filename and click the copied file not reinsert, which seems to not keep the insertion point and scale....


Even if I do a saveas in autocad and a saveas for the image file when brought up it still remembers the 1st image...
