# Should included images have white borders?

I was wondering if the correct way to include an image\graphic in latex is A) crop ALL the white space around the figure and let LaTeX handle the borders/spacing completely; B) leave a white border in the graphic (if so, how much would be appropriate?).

I mean crop ALL the white space before including it. In the jpg file for example. – gbombara Feb 17 '13 at 17:16
