Encantado Maria,

TeXworks is a special kind of text editor, that provides some tools to
help you process the "*TeX markup" that you are editing, through one
or more of the available programmes/applications that make up the
extended TeX family of tools to make final document(s).

TeXworks it self, as a text editor, can not "see" graphics of any sort.

What determines the graphics format that you might use for your
finished document, is the *TeX tool that you are going process your
*TeX markup through.

For example, pdfLaTeX will process .jpg .png through into a final .pdf file.

If you are making a pdf as you final output, then quite often you
would use the pdfLaTex *TeX tools.

So it depends on what you are trying to achieve, and the TeXworks
manual (on help menu) will give you some pointers on how to achieve
that goal.

Also pages linked to here: http://www.tug.org/begin.html and here on
Nichola Talbot's site:   http://theoval.cmp.uea.ac.uk/~nlct/latex/
are very helpful.
