In this article, we will show you how to use AutoCAD Raster Design 2019 for Windows 64-bit, which is compatible with AutoCAD 2019 and other Autodesk products. You will learn how to install the software, access the raster design tools, work with raster entities, and export your results.
How to Install AutoCAD Raster Design 2019 for Windows 64-bit
To install AutoCAD Raster Design 2019 for Windows 64-bit, you need to have a valid license and an internet connection. You can download the software from the Autodesk website[^1^] or use the Autodesk Desktop App. Follow these steps to install the software:
Run the setup file and follow the instructions on the screen.

How to Access the Raster Design Tools
AutoCAD Raster Design 2019 provides a set of tools that are grouped into different panels on the Raster tab. Here are some of the main panels and their functions:
The Image panel contains tools for inserting, attaching, detaching, clipping, cropping, and transforming raster images.
The Cleanup panel contains tools for improving the quality of raster images by removing noise, speckles, holes, lines, borders, etc.
The Edit panel contains tools for modifying raster images by drawing, erasing, filling, copying, moving, rotating, scaling, etc.
The Convert panel contains tools for converting raster images into vector data by tracing lines, curves, polylines, circles, arcs, etc.
The OCR panel contains tools for recognizing text characters in raster images and converting them into editable text objects.
The Analysis panel contains tools for measuring distances, angles, areas, volumes, etc. in raster images.
How to Work with Raster Entities
A raster entity is a special type of object that represents a raster image or a part of it in AutoCAD. You can create raster entities by inserting or attaching raster images to your drawing or by converting raster data into vector data. You can also edit raster entities by using the tools on the Edit panel or by using standard AutoCAD commands such as Move, Copy, Rotate, Scale, etc.
To work with raster entities, you need to select them first. You can use the standard AutoCAD selection methods such as window selection or crossing selection. You can also use the Smart Pick tool on the Convert panel to select raster entities based on their color or brightness. To deselect raster entities, press Esc or click anywhere outside the image.
How to Export Your Results
After you finish working with raster entities in AutoCAD Raster Design 2019, you can export your results in different formats. You can save your drawing as a DWG file that contains both vector and raster data. You can also save your drawing as a DWF or PDF file that preserves the appearance of your raster entities. Alternatively, you can export your raster entities as separate image files in formats such as BMP, JPG, PNG, TIFF, etc.
To export your results, use the standard AutoCAD commands such as Save As or Export. You can also use the Save Image As tool on the Image panel to save a selected raster entity as an image file. To export multiple raster entities at once, use the Batch Save tool on the Image panel. 061ffe29dd
