# [texworks] Problem with .eps files

Sun Sep 18 18:50:36 CEST 2011

I hope someone here can help me.

I am a relatively naive end user of TexWorks, which has been wonderful
for me.

I'm now working on a book, and the publisher requires that diagrams
(it's mathematics) be in .eps format.  It says in my Latex manual
(Gratzer, More Math in Latex) that Latex assumes .eps files, so I should
just use the command \usepackage{graphicx} in the preamble, then code like:

\begin{figure}[ht]

\includegraphics{fig1}

\ncaption{1}

\end{figure}

This works fine if the file fig1 is a .png file.  But if I try it with
an .eps file, I get an error message:

The only thing I changed was the format: .png to .eps.  Both these
graphics files were created with GeoGebra, a dynamic geometry package.
I tried saving the Tex source code as foo.tex and also as foo.ltx.  It
didn't seem to help.  I am using Windows (but as a bona fide naive user,
I don't know the version--it's later than Windows 7).

Can anyone advise me on how to use .eps files?
