# eps figures not showing in Beamer/latex [closed]

I realize that I should use latex and not pdflatex to compile my tex file when I have eps figures in it. However, with beamer while making a presentation, my eps figures aren't showing up at all. Strangely all jpeg images are though! I have checked my path and it is correct.

Here is my slide where the eps figure is:

\documentclass{beamer}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{subfigure}
\usepackage{eps2pdf}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage[labelformat=empty]{caption}
\usetheme{CambridgeUS}

\begin{document}

\frame{
\frametitle{This is my slide title}

\begin{figure}
\begin{center}
\includegraphics[scale=0.25]{/home/user/Research/epsfigure_without_extension}
\caption{Wavenumber k=1}
\end{center}
\end{figure}

}

\end{document}

Don't use absolute pathes for your graphics, or loosen the security settings of dvips. – Ulrike Fischer Oct 25 '12 at 9:16
You could also try the epstopdf package or batch-convert your EPS files, e.g. via inscape (inkscape --export-pdf=output.pdf input.eps), and then compile with PdfLaTeX. – Jörg Oct 25 '12 at 9:33
@Jörg I tried doing a ps2pdf on my images but the trouble is my eps images are actually collage collections done via collage in unix so they don't convert to pdfs right. – drN Oct 25 '12 at 9:34
@UlrikeFischer I've not had trouble with absolute paths for my jpegs though? What do you mean "loosen the settings of dvips"? – drN Oct 25 '12 at 9:35
You will have to put one of eps somewhere for download. – Ulrike Fischer Oct 25 '12 at 10:15
