# Insert and compile EPS [duplicate]

I want to upload an .eps figure in my latex, i read this thread Why doesn't LaTeX allow me to import my .eps file when I compile it?

Although i got confused, is TexMaker able to convert .eps fully or is there a package which i should use?

\documentclass[authoryear,preprint,review,12pt]{elsarticle}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{float}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{amsthm}
\usepackage{mathtools}

\usepackage{lineno}

\begin{document}

\begin{flushleft}
\begin{figure}[H]\label{East Scotland}
%\includegraphics[scale=0.35]{figures/2.jpg}
\includegraphics[width=1.3\textwidth,keepaspectratio]{figures/boundaries_1h.eps}
\caption{Mesh and coordinates for North Sea, depth is in meters(m) }
\end{figure}
\end{flushleft}

\end{document}


thank you

• @Sverre It is not like the usual packages which you download in the file and compile .It warns me that epstopdf.sty Shell escape feature is not enabled , what does that mean? – George Aug 14 '14 at 11:34
• It means that pdflatex must be launched with the --shell-escape switch (from TeXmaker Option -> Configure). It enables pdflatex to interrupt compilation to let an external application be launched. Alternatively, you could do the conversion to pdf by hand, using epspdf or epspdf-extra if you're under Windows: it has a gui interface. The former is included in TeX Live (not in MiKTeX). You can take a look at a presentation, and download from here: ftp.dante.de/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/epspdf.html, ftp.dante.de/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/…. – Bernard Aug 14 '14 at 11:58
• It might be outdated, but there is still latex to compile *.tex files with .eps files included – user31729 Aug 14 '14 at 12:28
