    @SefaAnılSezer: The class uses \usepackage{graphicx} without options. In TeX Live and MiKTeX graphics.cfg of the distribution detects pdfTeX. Image types PNG, JPEG, PDF, JBIG2, MPS are supported. TeX Live also loads package epstopdf to support EPS images with automatic conversion to PDF. – Heiko Oberdiek Jun 30 '13 at 15:38

  • @SudhirBelagali Have you removed the option dvips anywhere from the class file, the global and local options? – Heiko Oberdiek Jun 11 '16 at 8:42
