Question pdfLaTeX - jpeg won't show

hey there,

I am trying to include .jpg pictures in my latex doument, and then compiling them with pdflatex. unfortunatley, I end up with an empty box in my document, instead of a colourful picture.

this is the latex I used:

\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{myjpeg} %without extension

this should do it, right? what could be wrong?

thnx very much for any suggestions!

* edit: found the solution myself, was very very stupid, so will not be mentioned here...

If I'm not wrong you can't insert jpeg files in tour LaTeX document. LaTeX support instead eps (Encapsulated Post Script) format.

You can obtain an eps image by converting your jpeg with Gimp for example.

The syntax is correct I think the problem will be resolved using this hint.
