Hi
I'd like to add a imge on screen, when I click the point,area etc, image is opened, the shortest way is creating image point?
I saw in the last webinar like this as adding office.png(00.34.14) I tried but I could not.  How can I add or create a image on screen shortly?

Thanks..

    Hi

    The answer depends on what you want to do.

    • If you want to have an image such as company logo always on screen, say in the top right of the screen, go to "File, Open file at fixed screen location", select your image, and then set the image size/location option to suit. It will always appear at the same size/screen location as you pan and zoom in and out.
    • If you want an image at a fixed point, go to "File, Open", select your image and then select as "Load as Picture Point Feature as Selected Loction". You will have to type in the image coordinates.
    • If you want to have the image (e.g. raster map) georeferenced, open as above and select manually geo-reference image. If you do this, you will need the coordinates of a number of points within the image, the 4 corner points for best. If you do this, the image will move and resize as you pan and zoom in and out.

    I hope this helps.

    Cheers

    That is the expected behaviour. As far as I know there is no option to display an image thumbnail at a point location, though I agree that this would be a good option.
