Use the Properties palette
to modify image properties such as the following:
- Frame color, layer, linetype, and linetype
- Image brightness, contrast, and fade
- Rotation, width, height, and scale
- Image transparency and transparency color
The settings apply only
to the selected images.
options do not affect images you added with Data
. If the image you are inserting is supported,
connect to it and add it to your map using Data
. This gives you more control over styling
and other options.
Rotation is in degrees
(or the units set by the AUNITS system variable); scale, width,
and height are based on the unit of measurement used in the drawing.
When you insert an image,
it is inserted on the current AutoCAD layer. Since AutoCAD Map 3D controls
the visibility and behavior of the layers, you can move an image
to another AutoCAD layer to take advantage of the layer properties.
For example, to display images, but not edit them, move the images
to an AutoCAD layer and lock the layer.
