Draw - Image
Inserts a raster image (bitmap) into the drawing.
Note that the DXF file which is created when saving a drawing, contains only a reference to images. It is recommended to keep the image file and the DXF file in the same folder, so QCad can find the image again when the DXF file is loaded later.
Transparent backgrounds are supported for PNG images.
Note that large bitmaps can cause the drawing display to become very slow. Rotating large bitmaps with QCad is generally not advisable. You might want to use a bitmap graphic application to rotate the image before you insert it into a QCad drawing.
Usually you will want images to be in the background of other entities. Please refer to the 'Modify' - 'Send to back' function to learn how to do that.
