MAP and Civil working together

Yesterday I attended the Seize the Opportunity - ProSoft PowerLaunch 2011, and was throughly impressed by the What the Hell are these Map tools doing in Civil 3D, presentation given by AutoDesk employee Peter Southwood. One of the tips he gave was to connect to images instead of inserting them into the drawing. no only does this reduce the overall drawing file size it saves system resources also. I was unable to find any posted online by Peter, but I did find an AU OnLine article that details the image connect and much more. So take a look and see if it works for you.
