I'm asking a question is quite similar to this one (where I don't seem to be able to leave comments):
I'm producing a PDF document, but I'm using the DVI previewer inside LeD while doing so. Including graphics is a bit problematic. Suppose I want to include a file simple_ambiguity.png.
doesn't work with the DVI, because of a bounding box error. This is a nuisance because I don't actually care about having the graphics display accurately inside the DVI, or even having it take up the right amount of space -- I just want it to compile.
At the moment I'm using a workaround: I'm creating a dummy `empty picture' file simple_ambiguity.eps whose dimensions I don't really care about, and then writing
But this is a nuisance because I have to manually create an eps every time I add a new picture. What I'm looking for is some simple fire-and-forget solution that will make the DVI just compile.
(Of the answers in the question I linked to, the first seems to involve manually creating bounding boxes, and the second involves invoking ImageMagick on every compile, which will be unnecessarily slow & introduce a rather awkward dependency.)
