How to insert a background biptmap in Diptrace?

(1/2) > >>

TERRA Operative:
I have a Tek PCB I'm currently replicating and I'm looking for a way to insert a background bitmap so I can use it to trace out the layout of the original PCB.

Is this sort of thing possible in Diptrace?

mcinque:
adding an image it's possible without problems using the image button (attached)

I neve tried to send it to a bottom layer to route over it

I'm not at the pc now but I'll try asap and make you know my results

MarkF:
Simple.
Just create a black-and-white image as a bmp or png file.
Then, add the image to your top or bottom silkscreen as @mcinque pointed out.

Be aware black will represent the image and white the transparent color.

mcinque:
Thanks MarkF  :-+

TERRA Operative:
My image isn't black and white, it's a photo of a PCB so short of redrawing the PCB and component layout, to then re-redraw the layout in Diptrace, that method unfortunately won't work.
