Hi

I never used TexMaker, but i think the below one works
\begin{figure}
\centering
\includegraphics[10cm, 5cm][10cm, 5cm]{Graphs PNG/Color Contour SLI.png}
\caption{This is a test.}
\end{figure}

"[10cm, 5cm][10cm, 5cm]" it is the width of the bounding box you can the value according to your figure measurement.
