Unformatted text preview: Using Imported Graphics in L A T E X and pdfL A T E X Keith Reckdahl epslatex at yahoo dot com Version 3.0.1 January 12, 2006 This document describes first how to import graphics into L A T E X documents and then covers a wide variety issues about their use. Readers can locate specific infor- mation by checking the Table of Contents starting on page 5 or the Index starting on page 122. Importing graphics begins with specifying the graphicx package \usepackage{graphicx} and then using the \includegraphics command to insert the file \includegraphics{file} The \includegraphics command is covered in more detail in Section 7 on Page 22. This document is divided into the following five parts Part I: Background Information This part provides historical information and describes basic L A T E X terminol- ogy. It also The Encapsulated PostScript ( eps ) format, differences between eps and ps files, and methods for converting non- eps graphics to eps . The graphic formats that can be directly imported with pdfT E X ( jpeg , png , pdf , MetaPost) are described. Freeware/Shareware graphics software is described. Part II: The L A T E X Graphics Bundle This part describes the commands in the graphics bundle which import, scale, and rotate graphics. This part covers much of the information in the graphics bundle documentation [ 7 ]. Part III: Using Graphics Inclusion Commands This part describes how the graphics bundle commands are used to import, rotate, and scale graphics. Three situations where graphics inclusion is modified are also covered: Copyright 1995-2006 by Keith Reckdahl.

When using other operating systems, the non- eps graphics must be converted to eps be- forehand. Since neither L A T E X nor dvips has any built-in decompression or graphics- conversion capabilities, that software must be provided by the user. Since many graphics applications support only ascii text, the ps frag system allows text in eps files to be replaced with L A T E X symbols or mathematical expressions. When an eps graphic is inserted multiple times (such as a logo behind the text or in the page header) the final PostScript includes multiple copies of the graphics. When the graphics are not bitmapped, a smaller final PostScript file can be obtained by defining a PostScript command for the graphics....
