I am trying to insert a image which is in .eps format from my computer into latex file. But I always get an error if I add the scale part but works fine without scale. Here is my code below.

Works fine:

    \caption{Sales vs Assets}

Doesn't work fine:

        \caption{Sales vs Assets}

What's the error? – egreg Sep 3 '12 at 23:58
Overfull \hbox.. – Vutukuri Sep 4 '12 at 0:13
Try to use \fbox{\includegraphics{}} to see the size of the bounding box of you picture. By the way, \overfull is not an error, but only a warning. – Sigur Sep 4 '12 at 0:18
