You should now see your image tiled within the circle. Before inserting an image, it imgaeclip a good idea to create a new layer for your image. You can create a hatch pattern from any image that AutoCAD can attach. The Image Transparency command can be used to make the background colour of a bitonal image transparent. This command has many options that are well worth getting to know but for now we will just look at how to create a imageclio pattern from an image.

For most purposes, deselect the “Retain Path” checkbox. Start the Super Hatch command and you will be presented with a small dialogue box shown on the left that offers a number of options. There is also a techniques tutorial, Imagdclip Images that demonstrates the best way to scale raster base information.

Wipeout or Image Clip using a Circle or Spline

You can control how closely Super Hatch approximates curves by changing the “Curve error tolerance” value in the dialogue box. For the sake of speed it may be imageckip to work with low colour images and then switch to true colour at the end of the drawing process before you plot.

This is because the “Retain Path” option was deselected when the image was attached.

Normally, you will work with image frames turned on the default and turn frames off at the end of the drawing process.

AutoCAD merely looks for images that have been attached and loads them as required. So, if you want the image to be five drawing units wide, you could set the scale factor to five. You can check the effect by using Print Preview or work with a white window background. You can change the image path either by clicking on the “Browse…” button and navigating your way to the image location or you can change the image path in the edit box.


The images below show the effects of various brightness, contrast and fade settings. Pick a point when you are happy with the image size and the full image is displayed at the required size.

However, if like me, you travel around and work on different computers, this can cause problems. It’s also worth bearing in mind that if you intend to print a faded image, the result will always be a lighter image since paper is white. This involves selecting the image file, setting a few parameters and then picking points to position and scale the image.

The Image Adjust command allows you to modify the brightnesscontrast and fade of an image. Forum contains no unread posts Forum contains unread posts Mark all read. In other words, images do not become an integral part of a drawing. The Properties Window new to AutoCAD allows you to do this from one location and displays the value of all image attributes at a glance.

June 4, 7: Also see Scaling Images to find out how to scale scanned base information. When the image is reloadedit will reappear just as it was before you unloaded it. See the images below to see the effect of the two clipping types. The foreground pixels of bitonal images are always displayed in the layer or object colour. If you are using Adobe Photoshop to prepare your bitonal images, the image Mode should be set to “Bitmap” before it is saved.

The Toggle Frames command ikageclip a simplified version of the Image Frame command, covered above. High quality images take more memory to display and your computer may work faster if you have image quality set to Draft.

Unfortunately, AutoCAD does not support the GIF image file format and so it is not possible to display multicoloured images with a transparent imagecpip. Sometimes you may want to remove an image from your drawing. The important thing to remember about images and the thing that causes most confusion amongst novice users is that they are not actually inserted into a drawing as the “Insert” pull-down menu might suggest. When the file is selected, an image preview appears.


You can change the position of any of the clipping boundary grips within the image area.

Rather than prompting to turn frames either on or off and requiring some user input, it simply inverses the current state. This tutorial shows you how to use all of the tools on the Image section of the Reference toolbar, shown below.

Using such tools, you could use an image to trace some base information. Changes made to the image path in this way will affect only the active path.

You should now see the familiar Select Image File dialogue box. However, running a site like CADTutor does cost money and you can help to improve the service and to guarantee its future by donating a small amount.

You can follow the tutorial from start to finish in order to learn all about images and AutoCAD. However, if you want your hatch to look uniform, you will need to use an image that will tile seamlessly rather like the tiles that you use for your Windows wallpaper.

June 4, The tutorial will show you how to attach an image to an AutoCAD drawing and how to manipulate the ajtocad appearance. You can use “U” to undo any picked point, just as you can with the Polyline command. To scale the image dynamically, simply move the mouse. This means that the image will be inserted imagsclip that its width is one drawing unit. Click the “Close” button to clear the Toolbars dialogue box. When you do this, the image frame remains visible providing frames are on so you can still see the image position and scale.

Once you have created a hatch pattern using a particular image, you needn’t go through the same process of attaching the image next time you want to create a similar hatch pattern in the same drawing. The “Image found at” area of the Image Manager allows you to change the active and saved paths of any attached image.
