Inserting a picture into a latex document

    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 (Text):

    \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 (Text):

    \usepackage{graphicx}
