Change File Paths of Raster Images

With the External References palette, you can change the file path to a referenced raster image file or search for a referenced image when it is reported as not found.

When you open a drawing with an attached image, the path of the selected image is displayed in the External References palette in the Details Pane under Found At. The path displayed is the actual path where the image file was found. The path where the image file was originally attached is displayed under Saved Path.

To locate the image file, the program searches the following paths and folders in the following order:

If you open a drawing that contains an image that is not in the saved path location or in any of the defined search paths, the External References palette displays Not Found in the image list, and the Found At properties is blank.

You can remove the path from the file name or specify a relative path by editing the path in the Found At properties and then clicking OK in the Select Image File dialog box.
