# Insert WMF file

I have a bunch of `.wmf` image files. Is there a way that I can insert those in a LaTeX document without having to convert them to `.eps` files?

I am on Windows.

@JosephWright I had seen that question, but the answers seemed to point to converting the .wmf files to .eps files. –  Thomas Mar 29 '12 at 20:05
As I said, I think it's related but not necessarily a dupe. The problem is that the short answer here is 'no'! –  Joseph Wright Mar 29 '12 at 20:06
@JosephWright Ok, so I have to convert the files? –  Thomas Mar 29 '12 at 20:07

The `.wmf` graphics format is not supported directly by any TeX engines. Thus the files will always have to be converted to `.eps` or `.pdf` format. This is discussed in Inserting a .EMF file into a LaTeX document. focussing on `.emf` files, but some of the information there also applies to `.wmf` files.
