# insert image in latex

I have an image pipo.eps and a latex file named invoice.tex
Both are placed in the same dir on a server, and I have a webapplication that displays a nice pdf document from the tex file. Now, I want to insert pipo.eps into the file. Assume that I really know nothing about latex. Someone gave me some code but it gives errors. Someone else said there is something wrong with "usepackage". I really don't know what to do?

hi,

here is an exemple to show you how to insert image(.eps) in your file

% invoice.tex
\documentclass[pdf,umbc3,slideColor,colorBG]{prosper}
\Logo{\umbclogo}   % add an optional UMBC logo
\begin{document}

\begin{slide}{Graphics}

Use the \verb|\includegraphics| command to include
encapsulated Postscript graphics in \LaTeX\ documents,
like this:

\bigskip

\begin{center}
\includegraphics[height=35mm]{pipo.eps}

\end{center}

\end{slide}

\end{document}

You can get this exemple here :
http://www.math.umbc.edu/~rouben/prosper/graphics.html

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Kaireny.

Sorry, it seems that the problem is different. Although the embedded latex compiler I am using generates a pdf document, there seem to be errors in it. Because small normal modifications to the document cause the compiler to fail generating a pdf document, with errors. I am not a latex expert. I did not make this document, I just have to add an image to it. Could someone debug? The below document works, but if I remove the % on the 2nd line, it fails with errors. (points increased).

Well, if when you uncomment the graphic package, you get an error, i would say you have a probleme with your package.
If i well remember, graphicx is a standard package, but maybe yours is corrupted or somethig likes that.
Maybe reinstalling it is a good idea.

Here is a pdf file for LateX : http://158.110.32.35/LATEX/beginlatex.pdf
Check chapter 5.1 etc for packages installation.

Hope you will find what you need,
Regards,

Kair.
