I'm having a problem with inserting SketchUp images into AutoCAD. The images is fine in other applications, but when I put it into AutoCAD ("Insert" tab > "Attach") the resolution is pretty terrible - some lines don't even appear. Is there some way to get these images into CAD with the correct quality?
Sorry if this has been covered before. I'm using AutoCAD 2010; also let me know if this issue persists through the versions to 2013.
I've had a problem like this, it was too much quality images...
Tries to reduce the image quality, size, in a image application, to have the size you need in your dwg, then attach the image again and see if there is a deference...
Thanks Henrique. I'm not an expert on images, if someone could advise me how to do this, I'd appreciate it.
The image files can be around 2,500 - 3,000 KB. I don't know if that is excessive. I'd really hope to salvage as much quality as possible.
If there is no solution to this, it's a shame. The image quality is important for what I'm doing and other applications (like VectorWorks) can handle it.

Iif you have an image with 100x50cm and 300 DPI by cm, and you only needs in the dwg a printed image with 50x25cm then your image has more information than what will be printed if your image is reduced in a image software to become with the size that you will use in dwg, then there is no more information that is needed. If you not have any image software, IrfanView is free, and there are many other free.
make a copy of one image, reduces the size, attach the image, and see if the quality is better in dwg.
