Here follows a sample LaTex code


This is a test text.

\resizebox{\hsize}{!}{\includegraphics[bb=0 0 2291 2387]{frac.jpg}}

The figure in JPEG format can be found enter link description here

When I compile the code figure is too small! Why? What am I doing wrong? Any suggestions on how to obtain the PDF file with the correct sized graph?

Even when I use directly the PDFLaTex the PDf output is again the the same with the small graph.

My PDF output can be viewed enter link description here. See how small is the figure placed at the left bottom.

Many thanks in advance!

    Why do you not use pdflatex directly`? – user31729 Jan 7 '17 at 16:12
  • @ChristianHupfer Even when I use pdflatex directly adding \pdfoutput=1 at the begging of the document the size of the figure is too small placed at the left bottom. – Vaggelis_Z Jan 7 '17 at 16:14

    Your pdf output is produced by pdfTeX 1.40.11, which is quite old. Please update. And an MWE with article or standalone would be appreciated. – Reinstate Monica - M. Schröder Jan 7 '17 at 17:05
  • @MartinSchröder I edited my question including a simpler exaple with standard article. How can I update pdflatex? I have the version 2.9 of MikTex under Windows XP SP3. – Vaggelis_Z Jan 7 '17 at 17:17

    don't use the bb option with pdflatex – David Carlisle Jan 7 '17 at 17:22

Don't use the bb option with pdflatex (You should have a warning about that in the log)

    Option `bb' does not make sense,
    using `viewport' instead%
