\includegraphics{DSCF0036}% or \includegraphics{DSCF0036.jpg}

Of course, the driver must support JPEG files, this is the
case for pdfTeX in PDF mode. Because pdfTeX in PDF mode
includes the driver backend, the size of the image is known
to pdfTeX.

Users of latex/dvips can use jpeg2ps to convert the JPEG file
to EPS.
