I'm trying to follow the tutorial on this website (link).

I can typeset the cover letter example with a .jpg, but not a .eps. I get the error

! LaTeX Error: File figures/UILogoLG3L' not found.
See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type H for immediate help.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You have to compile with latex not with pdflatex as it is a eps figure. If you want to use eps figure and compile with pdflatex, you may need to load the package epstopdf. –  Harish Kumar Dec 30 '12 at 22:52
Try to add the extension figures/UILogoLG3L.eps and, as @HarishKumar suggested, load the package \usepackage{epstopdf}. –  tohecz Dec 30 '12 at 22:55
I agree with Harish Kumar but thought this link might give you more of an explanation. –  DJP Dec 30 '12 at 22:56
I can't compile with latex, I don't have that option. I have pdfLatex and a bunch of other ones, but not latex. How do I get latex? Also, How do I "load a package"? –  piratepartypumpkin Dec 30 '12 at 23:39
Your editor should be able to do it. Or from command line execute latex -shell-escape yourfile.tex (since epstopdf needs shell escape). To load a package, simply put \usepackage{epstopdf} in your preamble (between \documentclass{article} and \begin{document}) –  Harish Kumar Dec 31 '12 at 0:06

Convert the eps to jpg using eps2pdf utility or another converter (such as Adobe Acrobat Professional. Then you can include it (since pdflatex does not recognize .eps` files)
