# Figure won't compile

I am trying to add a picture in the same folder, subfolder pictures, named iphone.png, but it will terminate with an error.

\documentclass[journal]{IEEEtran}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\DeclareMathOperator{\Alt}{alt}

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}
\label{fig:iphoneCropped}
\begin{center}
\includegraphics[trim=0 5cm 0 5cm, clip]{../pictures/iphone.png}
\caption{Pictures of site on iphone}
\end{center}
\end{figure}

\autoref{fig:iphoneCropped}
Also it will refer to this picture as being subsubsection III-A1, instead of as figure.

\end{document}

• what error message did you get? Also note that \label must be after \caption. – David Carlisle Dec 18 '18 at 12:58
• from your description I would expect you want {pictures/iphone.png} rather than {../pictures/iphone.png} but impossible to say. (The comment in the last line of your example is due to \label being in the wrong pace as noted in the first comment) – David Carlisle Dec 18 '18 at 12:59
• Package pdftex.def Error: File '../pictures/iphone.png' not found: using draft setting. Thank you David it now finds the picture, and the right ref type :)!!! I didn't know the label placing meant so much. – yoshi Dec 18 '18 at 13:03

The path needs to be relative to the directory where tex is run, and \label needs to be after, or in, \caption
