I want to include a graph in eps file format in a Latex paper and I'm having some trouble. I have read a few online tutorials, but I can't seem to make any headway. I started by putting the eps file to be included in the same folder that my latex document is saved to. Then I included \usepackage{graphicx} in my preamble. I then tried to use \includegraphics{woodSaxon.eps} where woodSaxon is the name of the file I wanted to include. This gave me a Latex compiler error entitled "Unknown graphics extension: .eps". Does anyone know what my problem is? Thanks,

Thanks for the response. I'm not sure I know what you mean when you say latex command. If you’re referring to experience using latex, then this is the first time I have attempted to include graphics. I have created papers just containing equations and text that turned out fine. My output is pdf, if that specifies pdflatex. My whole document looks fine when I create a pdf, I just can't get it to compile when I try to include the image because of the error I described in the first post. If it helps I'm using Texnic Center with Miktex 2.7.

Turns out TeXnicCenter has a Latex=>PS=>PDF option that did the trick. Thanks for the help.
