I've successfully imported scanned PCB artwork layout from magazines into Eagle and would like to use that to create a circuit board.
Having imported the BMP into an empty board layout in Eagle I was hoping I could use that layer as a guide for placing the components as well as connecting them together but being a novice I'm not able to figure out how or if it's even possible.
It seems Eagle's way of doing things is to first create a schematic, then make a board out of that -not the other way round.
Is there a way I can use the scanned images in Eagle (I don't have/intend to buy any etching gear for the "photoresist" method or know anyone who can help me with that, so it seems easier to find a company which makes PCBs from Eagle generated files). I'm using Eagle 6.5.0 (Light edition) on a Mac.
