# How to insert the author picture in the biography picture box of the IEEE LaTeX Template

How do I put the author picture in the picture frame box of a journal paper? I tried using this code but the picture wasn't placed in the box, it is outside the box. Here is the code:

\begin{biography}{{\includegraphics[width=25mm,height=32mm,clip,keepaspectratio]{a.eps}}}
Name ... was born in ... more text.
\end{biography}

Hint, by indenting your code with four spaces, it gets put in a code block. :) – qubyte Feb 19 '12 at 7:41

You're using the wrong biography environment. You need to use the IEEEbiography environment. Here is the correct code:

\begin{IEEEbiography}[{\includegraphics[width=1in,height=1.25in,clip,keepaspectratio]{a.eps}}]%
{name}
was born in ... on ... more text.
\end{IEEEbiography}

In ieee.cls (as IEEE is in the title) of 2000/01/11 there's no IEEEbiography environment, but a biography environment with optional argument for the picture file name. I confirm your solution works with IEEEtran though, as the tag may lead to. – Stefan Kottwitz Feb 20 '12 at 6:52

The question has also been posted on LaTeX-Community.org: IEEE.cls Template & Author Photo.

As I wrote there: the biography environment works without \includegraphics, and with square brackets, since the picture argument is optional:

\begin{biography}[a.eps]{name}
was born in  ... on ...
\end{biography}

I tried doing this and it does not work. Do you have any other suggestions to get this working. – user62089 Aug 20 '13 at 14:28
@user62089 Perhaps post a new question with details. "does not work" isn't enough, since for me it does. Your situation might be something different. – Stefan Kottwitz Aug 20 '13 at 17:32
