    The only ways to bring a picture into AutoCad are to insert it as an image using the IMAGEATTACH command, or attach it as a cross referenced file commonly referred to as an XREF. AutoCad cannot convert images to dwg format. One must trace it manually, or otherwise manually redraw it in AutoCad. There are third party programs that claim to be able to do it, but their output is almost universally unsatisfactory. The issue is that images are raster files, and AutoCad dwg files are vector based coordinately located lines.
    The S197 gen Ford Mustang, and the F-4 Phantom both prove the same theory. "With enough power applied, a school bus will fly."
