How to include graphics with spaces in their path?

When I add a piece of code of figure insertion to the context I'm faced with a problem: a number of irrelevant words appear.


        \includegraphics[width=0.9\textwidth]{C:/Thesis/Latex/thesis_1(1)/Pictures/study area.jpg}
    \caption{The Grand St. Bernard wireless sensor network deployment (a) the coordinates of nodes according to the Swiss coordinate system (b) the distribution of the nodes in the study site \citep{r33}}
    \label{fig:study area}

    it looks as if this has something to do with the space in the file name (but others know more about this). what i really wanted to do is suggest that you put a "slash space" (\ ) after "St." so that the space there isn't so large. – barbara beeton Dec 6 '12 at 18:42
  • rename your file so that it does not include white spaces, e.g. study_area.jpg – Jörg Dec 6 '12 at 18:43

Earlier you were not allowed to have spaces in a file name but now you can (see e.g. this page for more details). Obviously you still get some unwanted results. A good solution is to avoid spaces in filenames altogether and use hyphens or underscore characters instead.
