to insert a figure in latex, try the following code:

\begin{figure}[h]
\begin{center}
\includegraphics[width=4in]{your_file.jpg}
\end{center}
\caption{your_caption}
\end{figure}

note that you can adjust the size of your figure using the width parameter; height should simultaneously scale proportionately.

    Also, remember to add

    \usepackage{graphicx}

    at the top of the file

    I use the same syntax and get this error:

    ! Undefined control sequence
    1.75 \includegraphics
    [width=3in]{FS2004.jpg}\\
    ?

    What is this error? Everyone uses this code and it works. Am I missing something?
