To get a color image to your M-Color drawing is a 2-step procedure. First get an image that has transparent background, then insert it into AutoCAD and do the usual Preview and Plot to get the plot to M-Color Preview. There is just one additional thing you need to do in step one compared to using a raster image without a transparent background.
For your information: All the Dosch images come in two formats. The format to use with M-Color (AutoCAD too) is TIFF.
