How to insert images into TeXnicCenter (DVI)

  1. Oct 3, 2012 #1
    I am trying to using this line:

    \includegraphics{C:/Users/PhizKid/Desktop/Untitled.jpg}

    But there is no image showing up when I view the DVI file. What am I doing wrong? (I have \usepackage{graphicx} somewhere at the top)


    nvm, I got it

    No matter which you use tex editor (TeXnicCenter), if you have the necessary packages to include graphics you should not put any problem as long as you include the necessary libraries.

    Code (Text):

    \usepackage[dvips,pdftex]{graphicx}
    \usepackage{graphics}
     
    These are the default for lines include a graph.

    Code (Text):

    \begin{figure}[h!]
    \centering
    \includegraphics[scale=0.5]{your graphic}\quad
    \caption{title}
    \label{name}
    \end{figure}
     
    Overview pdf If you can see the graph and then your problem is with the dvi. You should check with other formats (png, eps, pdf)

    regards

    I don't think that DVI directly supports included graphics. This is usually handled by dvips or pdfLaTeX if you compile directly into PDF (my preferred way).

    pdfLaTeX supports .jpg, .png and .pdf. Last time I checked, dvips needed .eps
