(Not really a TeXworks issue)

TeXworks uses a PDF-based workflow: in any case, you should never use an
extension with \includegraphics:

\includegraphics[width=3.0in]{fig4}

Assuming a recent MiKTeX or TeX Live, auto-magic conversion will then
take place.

Note also that in LaTeX you really shouldn't use \centerline, which is a
plain TeX command: use

\begin{figure}
\centering
\includgraphics
