I have a georeferenced .jpg file with the .jgw file containing the coordinates. I want to use it as a background in OCAD. But when I open the file as a background, the jpg file is not georeferenced to any coordinates. How can I open it and reference it to the right coordinates in OCAD?

I have done the same thing with a georeferenced .tif and a .tfw file containing the coordinates.

  • Yes, doing it manually like that is the worst case solution. I would prefer if it would be possible to do automatically as with a georeferenced .tif – Jonas Oct 1 '10 at 9:47
