Adjusting Image Brightness, Contrast, and Fade
Concept Procedure Quick Reference

When you adjust image brightness, contrast, and fade in AutoCAD Map 3D, the changes you make affect the display of the image as well as the plotted output, but do not affect the original raster image file. Adjust brightness to darken or lighten an image. Adjust contrast to make poor-quality images easier to read. Adjust fade to make vectors easier to see over images or to create a watermark effect in your plotted output.

NoteThis option does not affect images you added with Data Connect. If the image you are inserting is supported, connect to it and add it to your map using Data Connect. This gives you more control over styling and other options.
Note Bitonal images cannot be adjusted for brightness, contrast, or fade. Bitonal images fade to the current screen background when displayed, and fade to white (the color of most paper) when plotted.
