# Inserting images in report class document

I am writing a thesis report, and would like to insert images. A majority of the images that I am using are high resolution bitmap. I am using the following to insert the images

    \usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{caption}
\usepackage{float}
\usepackage{refstyle}

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}[H]

\graphicspath{ {Chapter1Images/} }
\centering
\includegraphics{logo}
\caption{Typical Moment-Resisting Frame Deformation}
\label{fig:ch1deformedframe}

\end{figure}

\end{document}


This works exactly as I want it to if I put in a basic PNG image, but as soon as I attempt to insert a high resolution bitmap image I get an error saying it cannot find the file. Is there a special way you must go about inserting bitmap-type images?

• And what kind of file are you trying to include, precisely? – jon Jul 5 '15 at 20:02
• @jon its just a .bmp file. I have it located in the same folder as the .png. but the png will insert to my document while the bmp gives me an error – Ryan G Jul 5 '15 at 20:04
• @RyanG pdftex can not include bmp, you can losslessly convert it to png first. – David Carlisle Jul 5 '15 at 20:08
• @DavidCarlisle oh, well that is disappointing. Thank you for clearing it up. There is no package you can install to make Latex accept bitmap? – Ryan G Jul 5 '15 at 20:19
• @RyanG The binary determines what files can be included. The best a package can do is on-the-fly conversion. – Joseph Wright Jul 5 '15 at 20:30
