FreeCAD News: Refactored Image Import Feature

FreeCAD has recently undergone significant changes to its image import functionality thanks to the efforts of developers @wwmayer and @PaddleStroke. The old “Image Workbench” has been eliminated, and images are now given elevated status within FreeCAD. Their importation has been integrated into the core as a standard File->Open or File->Import. Additionally, @PaddleStroke has implemented a more intuitive user interface for setting the scale of an imported image, which is crucial given that the primary use for imported images is to match new CAD geometry to the scale depicted in the image. Those with recent developer builds are encouraged to test the new image handling and provide their feedback.
