So this question has been asked a lot of times and I´ve tried every suggestion on this subject. none of which has worked for me. Error screen

Here I just tried printing an image in my pdf. I've tried the following

  • Makings sure there are no typos in the file
  • using: tools > PDFLaTeX
  • doing changes to the root folder in MikTeX settings

It seems that the tex file does find my png. If I change the name of the image file such that it is incorrect, then the console gives me an error: "file xxx not found". But if the file name is correct, I get the 'file not found' window.

    you have spurious doubled {{..}} in \includegraphics the exact behaviour of that depends which version of graphics you have installed, but it is always wrong. Dec 30, 2020 at 13:56

    it would also help if you showed the complete error from the log file not just a screenshot of your editor dialog. Dec 30, 2020 at 13:58

    For testing purposes, I suggest that you don't use accented characters in the \graphicspath, and that you rename the picture to something consisting only of letters. If this works, you can add, step by step, underscores, parentheses and accented letters.

1 Answer 1


So I figured it out. Just as others had problems with typos and things like that my problem also had ~nothing with the code to do really. The problem was in the image format. Yes, it was .png but as I tried opening it in paint.net I also got an error. So I took a snip of my image and re-saved it. (an alternative is using an online image converter)
