I'm not sure what you want is even possible.  I think that TIFF would need to be imported into AutoCAD or whatever program you're using separately from the DWG file as either a picture or a metafile.  

 

As I understand it, DWG files are vector (line) based and pictures are bitmap based so having the bitmap file (tiff) in the dwg file may not even be possible.  This is not unlike the way bitmap files work with Chief Architect .plan files.  They must be sent in a separate folder.  The only thing that travels with the plan file is the link to that bitmap.

Michael,

Just to clarify.

If you use the Save In File option, the actual picture is stored in the plan file.

No need to send separately.
