A A Using Imported Graphics in L TEX and pdfL TEX Keith Reckdahl epslatex at yahoo dot com Version 3.0.1 January 12, 2006

A This document describes first how to import graphics into L TEX documents and then covers a wide variety issues about their use. Readers can locate specific information by checking the Table of Contents starting on page 5 or the Index starting on page 122.

Importinggraphics begins with specifying the graphicx package

and then using the \includegraphics command to insert the 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
A This part provides historical information and describes basic LTEX terminology. 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 pdfTEX (jpeg, png, pdf, MetaPost) are described. • Freeware/Shareware graphics software is described.
A Part II: The L TEX Graphics Bundle This part describes the commands in thegraphics 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:

• Compressed eps files and non-eps graphic formats (tiff, gif, jpeg, pict, etc.) can also be inserted on-the-fly when dvips is used with an operating system which supports pipes (such as Unix). When using otheroperating systems, the non-eps graphics must be converted to eps beforehand. A Since neither L TEX nor dvips has any built-in decompression or graphicsconversion capabilities, that software must be provided by the user. • Since many graphics applications support only ascii text, the psfrag A system allows text in eps files to be replaced with L TEX symbols or mathematical expressions. • When an epsgraphic 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. Part IV: The figure Environment There are several advantages to placing graphics in figure environments. Figureenvironments automatically number graphics, allowing them to be referenced or included in a table of contents. Since the figures can float to avoid poor page breaks, it is much easier to produce a professional-looking document. In addition to general information about the figure environment, this section describes the following figure-related topics: • How to customize the figure environment, such as adjustingfigure placement, figure spacing, caption spacing, and adding horizontal line between the figure and the text. Caption formatting can also be customized, allowing users to modify the style, width, and font of captions. • How to create marginal figures and wide figures which extend into the margins. • How to produce figures with landscape orientation in a portrait document. • How to place captionsbeside the figure instead of below or above the figure. • For two-sided documents, how to ensure that a figure appears on an odd or even page. Also, how to ensure that two figures appear on facing pages. • How to create boxed figures. Part V: Complex Figures This part describes how to construct complex figures that contain multiple graphics. • How to form side-by-side graphics, side-by-side figures, and...
