I want to put some graphs and images in my LaTeX document before submitting the document. Could you please help me by enumerating the steps required to do this? Which file formats for images work best in LaTeX and what resolution should I use for the images?
How to Import Graphics into a LaTeX Document
There are two possibilities to import graphics into your LaTex document. First method is to develop them with special code or second method is importing with the help of third party tools. To insert graphics into LaTeX, you should create a box with some size which fits to your graphic and embed into it. You have to load the graphic package. This package can recognize ‘final’ and ‘draft’ options in the document class. Using ‘draft’ may suppress your image. So, use ‘final’ to get output file perfectly. To include graphics, they must be in EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) format. Then EPS file named with .ps will be produced. Then make a PDF of figure, include graphic package and use includegraphics command. PDF, PNG, JPG file formats are supported. The image resolution should be between 300-600 dpi.
