I am trying to insert a image which is in .eps format from my computer into latex file. But I always get an error if I add the scale part but works fine without scale. Here is my code below.

Works fine:

    \begin{figure}
    \centering
    \includegraphics{Plot1}
    \caption{Sales vs Assets}
    \end{figure}  

Doesn't work fine:

\begin{figure}
        \centering
        \includegraphics[scale=.8]{Plot1}
        \caption{Sales vs Assets}
        \end{figure}

    Try to use \fbox{\includegraphics{}} to see the size of the bounding box of you picture. By the way, \overfull is not an error, but only a warning. – Sigur Sep 4 '12 at 0:18

You are using:

\usepackage{graphics}

But you need:

\usepackage{graphicx}

that extends package graphics and changes the syntax of \includegraphics to support key value options in the optional argument.
