### EPS images

Hello

I don't know why my TeXnic Center doesn't accept *.EPS figures.

It says that it is an unknown file format... why?

I need to use *.eps images because with *.jpeg the quality would be lost.

Thank you

Fra

Hi Fra,

can You give us an example of the error-code

something like:

\documentclass{article}\usepackage{graphicx}\begin{document}\begin{figure}	\centering		\includegraphics{test}\end{figure}\end{document}

compiled via LaTeX => DVI ...

Remember, EPS only works with the following compiling routes:
LaTeX => DVI
LaTeX => PS
LaTeX => PS => PDF

but not with LaTeX => PDF !!!

Greetings
Kris

I encountered a similar problem. How do I enable compile routine Latex=>PS=>PDF?

I found the wizard in Build, Define Output Profiles.

The wizard built LaTeX=>PS=>PDF;

Latex=>PS=>PDF died in dvips. Dvips indicated the folllowing error:
This is dvips(k) 5.95b Copyright 2005 Radical Eye Software (www.radicaleye.com)' TeX output 2007.03.08:2313' -> GrphB.ps<tex.pro><texps.pro><special.pro>. <cmr10.pfb><cmbx12.pfb>[1<clocklcopy.eps>dvips: Could not find figure file ../IMG/clocklcopy.eps; continuing]

I don't know why dvips couldnt find the same file that LaTex used to build GaphB.dvi.

That's it for tonight.

Hi EAGLE!

Have You tried to put clocklcopy.eps in the same directory
as Your tex-file(s)? There is a security problem with relative paths
for the standard call of dvips...

But You can add the option -R0 to the dvips call, which allows relative
paths...

Have fun!

Hi, as posted by Kris, you can't generate latex => pdf using eps figures.

There are many solutions, but one is to convert you eps figure to pdf using a program called epstopdf
http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/help/Ca ... topdf.html

You will need Ghostscript to be installed.

Paulo.

Keeping the eps file in the same directory as the source code fixed the problem.
Thanks to all especially Kris.

hey

i have been have the problem the first guy had, it will not show any picyures in a pdf file, it says Unknown graphics extension: .eps.

i belive it is because i have a Latex => PDF only set up but i have been unable to get the wizard or manuale produce Latex => PS => PDF so if some one could help that would be great??????

on my computer it produced the Latex => PS => PDF automaticly but i am using my parents and have just installed texnicCentre and i will not do it.

I am having this problem as well.

How can I produce "LaTeX=>PS=>PDF"?
