Imagine having a beautiful picture, but the subject is very small or not centered. What if you want to place several graphs side-by-side with subfigbut all or some of the graphs have a white border taking up a lot of space. The graphics bundle provides a way to crop an image using the trim, clip options of the includegraphics command.

This article will cover incorporating pictures and diagrams into LaTeX documents. If you're dealing strictly with geometric diagrams, consider reading about Asymptotea graphics language that works extremely well with LaTeX--as you can see from the length of this article, working with graphics and pictures without Asymptote in LaTeX is no easy feat. You can use more filetypes than just.
It depends on the LaTeX engine, e. The choice of the font, namely, latex of postscript fonts, is irrelevant to the interpretation of text strings. The most powerful method, in terms of capabilities and output quality, is to export the figure to tikz. If xelatex is used, eps and pdf graphics can be imported into the same drawing.
The problem is that the font size is inconsistent - is is clearly bigger in the picture than in document. I know about width parameter for includegraphics and other scaling option, but how to select the scale? Or, more generally, how to include PDF graphics to get exactly the same font size?
For high quality publications it is absolutely mandatory to embed all fonts in the respective PDF. If a PDF does not embed all fonts, the target system may replace the respective font with the 'best' available system font, so the document is almost certain to look different on different machines. Not quite what you want from a portable document standard, is it?
You can do this quite easily using the pdfpages package by Andreas Matthias. I learnt about this package from this post on Stackoverflow. The documentation accompanying the package is very good and quite easy to understand.
It's Metafilter's 20th anniversary! To celebrate, scan some cats or help fund Mefi! My method up until now has been to take a screenshot and convert to EPS, but I am not happy with the results.
