I am using a quick build of "LaTex + dvips + ps2pdf + view PDF".

What is the easiest way to insert (multiple) pictures?

I am fairly comfortable with LaTeX but I have never done this before. So if someone could give me a step-by-step guide (including any package I need to add to the preamble or where to put the folder of my images), it would be highly appreciated.

EDIT: I am now getting the error File "intro" not found, which makes me think I may have saved my images in the wrong folder?

\usepackage{graphicx} %graphics for the cards%






\includegraphics[height=3cm]{intro} \includegraphics[width=5cm]{intro}

  • Thank you, I am making progress (see updated text) although I have a feeling that perhaps I am saving the pictures in the wrong place? – Pellenthor Aug 22 '18 at 19:59

    @Pellenthor What file type is intro? An .eps image or something else? – user36296 Aug 22 '18 at 21:18

Key: For dvi compiling one would need .eps images (thank you @samcarter)

The steps are as follows:

  1. Add \usepackage{graphicx} to the preamble
  2. Save your image in the SAME folder as your .tex file
  3. Convert the image to .eps using an online converter like this one
  4. Use \includegraphics{picture_name} in the main OR
  5. Use \includegraphics{folder_name/picture_name} (if you saved the picture in a folder)
  6. For more adjustments (size, colors etc) consider this link
