# [OS X TeX] Bounding Boxes for jpg Files

Mon Jun 6 03:24:18 CEST 2005

I am using TeXShop 1.34 on Moc OS X 10.3.9.  Over the past 10 months, I have
been slowly migrating a autobiography from the PC world to the Mac OS X
world.  I have been able to migrate my document (including 100¹s of graphics
in .jpg format) without problem until today.  Today, as I entered my
Œstandard¹ command for including a new graphic,

\begin{figure
\begin{center}
\includegraphics[width=\columnwidth]
{../jpeg/Sam-Eileen-15Dec2001.JPG}\\
\color{blue}\caption[15 December 2001 - Sam Jr. and Eileen]{15
December 2001 - Sam Jr. and Eileen immediately prior to graduation
ceremonies for Sam's Masters Degree}
\index{Anderson!Eileen}
\end{center}
\end{figure}

I was told that TeXShop could not determine the size of the graphic due to a
lack of a bounding box.  In the PC world, I would have included a Œbb=0 0 x
y¹ command immediately following the width command and the system would have
been happy.  TeXShop does not seem to like the bb command.

Any ideas on how to feed the bounding box information directly to TeXShop or
how to embed the bounding box information in the .jpg file so that TeXShop
can find it?  Thanks.  Sam.....
