I'm working on overleaf v2.

I wrote :

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}  % Accents codés dans la fonte
\usepackage[frenchb]{babel}  % Les traductions françaises
\graphicspath{ {./images/} }
\caption{\textit{On compare la fonction de Lambert à $\log(x)-1$ dans un certain interval}}

But I just get, after compiling : enter image description here

Can you help me plz ?

Edit: png didn't work either

    (1) welcome, (2) always post full code, not sniplets. (3) It seems you have draft mode enabled, either as a class option or option to graphicx – daleif Jan 18 at 11:55

    Unrelated to your problem, but better use \log instead of log – samcarter Jan 18 at 12:00
  • I don't know how exactly your image looks like, but from the caption I would guess that jpg is not a good file type for it. Better use a vector format like pdf or if you really have to use a pixelated format at least use png – samcarter Jan 18 at 12:02

    Again unrelated to your problem, but don't load the same package multiple times and the option frenchb is deprecated, use french instead. For a French text it would probably also be good to load \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}. You probably want to give some floating specifier to your figure, e.g. \begin{figure}[htbp] for a better placement. And instead of manually changing the font family of your caption to italic, have a look at the caption package to make this automatically. – samcarter Jan 18 at 13:08

It looks like your editor could be set to 'draft mode' on Overleaf (this skips compiling images to render a PDF faster). You can turn it off on the dropdown menu on the Recompile button:

switch to 'normal mode' on recompile menu

Hope this does the trick, if you still see issues it could be worth writing to Overleaf support, at support@overleaf.com (I work there)

  • So in V2 we either get a fast autocompiler or an autocompiler that loads images, even though V1 could do both? – Melody Jan 21 at 8:44
  • @Melody Autocompile and fast mode can be turned on and off independently of each other, if that was the question? The standard compilation on v2 (with images rendered) is generally a bit faster than the same one on v1, but the caching of auxiliary files works a bit differently so some projects might be slower. If you're seeing a project compiling slower on v2 we should be able to help out if you write to us. On v1, the fast/draft setting also didn't show images. The setting is the same as passing the draft option to the documentclass. – walszje Jan 21 at 12:03
  • I'm seeing all my code compile a lot slower in V2 with the normal compile mode. I really wish I could still use V1, but it seems disabled now. At least I don't know how to access it. Maybe it's because I have a really long preamble? – Melody Jan 21 at 17:30
