I am new to LaTeX and currently am struggling with inserting a .png. Also, I am new to this forum so please tell me if anything is missing for the question. I have looked for similar topics, however I have not found anything.

I use texlive as backend and TeXstudio as editor. I am using the graphicx package and want to insert my .png in my document using the following commands:


However, in my PDF document, all I see is a box with the name "Test_circuit.png" inside it and the real picture does not show up. I attached the picture below.

enter image description here

Can anyone help me and tell me where my error is in my LaTeX document? Thanks in advance.

    I’m voting to close this question because it was solved in the comments. – Stefan Pinnow May 4 at 9:45

    fine. And to answer if your question is missing something: you should have shown a small complete example, starting with \documentclass. Then one wouldn't have to guess if you use draft but could see it. – Ulrike Fischer May 4 at 9:45
  • Alright, thanks. I will remember this for the future. Regarding the closing. Can I do this? – user241325 May 4 at 10:05
