You can modify an image by changing its brightness, contrast,
fade, size, rotation, or transparency. These changes affect the image in the
drawing only — not the original image file.
In addition to modifying a single image or multiple images
that you select, you can also modify all occurrences of an image within a drawing.
For example, if your company logo appears in multiple locations throughout a
drawing, you can use the Image Manager to specify the changes once and apply
them to all occurrences of the logo.
You can use other progeCAD commands for typical modifications,
such as Delete, Move, Layer, and more.
To modify images
- Do one of the following:
- Choose Image > Image Manager.
- On the Image toolbar, click the Image Manager tool ().
- Type image and then press Enter.
TIP You can also modify images by selecting one or more
images in a drawing, and then choosing Modify > Properties.
- In the Images list, select the image you want to modify. If there is more
than one occurrence of the image in the drawing, do one of the following:
- To modify all occurrences of the image, select a top-level
image in the list.
- To modify a single occurrence of the image, expand a top-level
image in the list, and then select the individual image.
- Adjust the Brightness, Contrast, and Fade by moving the slider to the setting
you want or by entering an exact number. The image preview shows how your
changes will affect the image.
TIP If you want to restore the parameters to those of
the original image, click Reset.
- Adjust the Size by making changes to the width (X) and height (Y) in drawing
units. Mark Keep Aspect if you want the width and height to change together
to retain the aspect ratio of the image.
- Adjust the Rotation by entering the number of degrees you want to rotate
the image to the left. Zero degrees indicates no rotation.
- Mark Use Transparency if you want entities located under the image to be
visible (for images that support alpha transparency, that is, images that
have at least one color that can be viewed as a transparent color).
- Mark Show Clipping Boundary if you want to show the image clipped, if a
clipping boundary is defined for the image. Unmarking this option displays
the whole image, even if a clipping boundary is defined.
- Click OK.
