# [Tugindia] Problem with inserting figures

(small correction from the previous mail)

Hi all,

When I insert figure in my latex file it is not accepting.
it gives me the error:

! Extra }, or forgotten \endgroup.

------
Heres what I do:

\begin{figure}
\includegraphics{pic.png}
\caption{some title}
\label{fig:1}
\end{figure}

I also tried with various extensions .bmp .jpg .pdf etc.
every time the same problem. In the preamble I gave the command

\DeclareGraphicsExtensions{.eps,.pdf,.ps,.png,.jpg,.bmp}
and I am using the package "graphicx"

Without the "figure" command the file runs properly.

I run PDFLaTeX. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks,
Rijo.
