I would like to create a cv including a photo. I am using the following code

\usepackage[scale=0.75, top=3cm, bottom=1cm]{geometry}
\email{[email protected]}                               


\cventry{1453 -- 1233}{Master of Science in nothing}{University of
    paparia}{}{}{GPA: 3.99/4.00}

without the command about adding a photo and the output is the one I would like. However when i put the command \photo[64pt][0.4pt]{picture}, where picture is the name of the folder which includes my photo, then an error appears

File 'picture' not found. \makecvtitle

The exact output is hereenter image description here Obviously the file is inside to my latex file. Is there a solution to my problem? Because I would like this format plus my photo.

Maybe I misunderstood this. But I think you should have a graphic called picture.jpg or picture.png (in the working directory) side by side to your tex file.

In case your graphic is located in a picture directory inside your working directory it should be

  • Do you mean \photo[64pt][0.4pt]{picture.jpg}? (my picture is jpg). There is also an error even with this change. Apr 22, 2021 at 16:08
  • the file ending is not needed. I also do think it would prevent the picture beeing included. Simply make sure the picture is located side by side to your *.tex file. Then your code should work fine. If you really like to have the picture in a separate folder you need to specify the name of the picture in that folder ;-)

    @T.Karawolf what do you mean by turned to the left? It is rotated anti clockwise? That would be strange...
