# LaTeX Inserting a picture into a latex document

#### jimmycricket

I am trying to insert a picture into a document im writing up but when I use pdftexify there seems to be a caption next to the image that I cannot remove. I am using winedt and am very new to Latex so bear that in mind. This is the operation I used:
\includegraphics[scale=2]{riemann sphere.jpg}

Can you attach the .tex file for a complete (short) document that doesn't work properly? i.e something like
Code:
\documentclass{...}
\usepackage{...}
\begin{document}
\includegraphics[scale=2]{riemann sphere.jpg}
\end{document}
Without that, we are guessing what the problem is - especially since you didn't tell us what the "caption" says.

You need the graphicx package for jpg images. I think without it, latex only accepts ps and eps?
Code:
\usepackage{graphicx}
