# Figure imported from Matlab to Latex [duplicate]

I have a problem getting a figure from Matlab into Latex. I have saved the figure as a EPS-file in the same folder as I have saved the latex-documents. This is what I wrote in Latex:

\begin{figure}
\includegraphics{diffusion}
\end{figure}

diffusion is the name of the figure. The problem is that when I run this code in Latex, I only get much open space, but no figure. Does anyone have an ide what I should do differently?

To clarify, are you using Latex or pdfLatex? My experience with eps files that is, for pdfLatex, the images must be converted to pdf first. See this question for more detail: Why can't pdflatex print EPS figures?

If you are using pdfLatex, you can either output pdf files from Matlab or try adding the following to your preamble:

\usepackage{epstopdf}
