# How to include a .gif inside TikZ mindmap? [closed]

I know that TikZ provides a mindmapping library. I am wondering if it is possible to insert a *.gif picture instead of writing text inside each child (circle). Any help will be appreciated in advance.

here is the sample:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{mindmap,trees}
\tikzset{concept/.append style={fill={none}}}
\begin{document}
\pagestyle{empty}
\begin{tikzpicture}
\path[mindmap,concept color=black,text=black]
node[concept] {Motivation}
[clockwise from=0]
child[concept color=green!50!black] {
node[concept] {practical} }
child[concept color=blue, counterclockwise from=30] {
node[concept,scale=1.2] {applied} }
child[concept color=orange, counterclockwise from=60] {
node[concept] {theoretical} };
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}


Now instead of "applied", I want to insert a *.gif image.

• Welcome to TeX.SX! You will most probably get more help, if you include some code in your question. I don't have a pre-written mindmap here to play around with. Please also show, what you have tried. \includegraphics{} for sure. Jun 19, 2014 at 9:10

• Convert yourimage.gif to yourimage.png and then \includegraphics{yourimage} instead of applied. Jun 19, 2014 at 9:34
• Thanks, but how can I use .gif with TikZ? Jun 19, 2014 at 9:35
• @user2090491 You can't use a .gif: you have to convert to a format that pdfTeX (etc.) support Jun 19, 2014 at 10:04
