Welcome to the forum!

Which command are you using for including? Did you specify file name and path? Perhaps show us a code line and tell where exactly the image is located, relative or absolute path.

You could also add the .log file here, as attachment to a forum post.

Two things: Need to make sure that you file extension is excepted. Also, if you are using the \includegraphics command, you need to make sure the file you want to include is in the sam place (folder) as your thesis.

Which template?
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Hi Maks,

welcome to the forum!

In addition to the information, which template you are using, perhaps also post error messages or warnings here. You could post attach the .log file here, as attachment. The link "Attachments" is below the text edit field, when writing a post.

Take care that you don't write in draft mode (document class or graphicx package option draft), that would not load the images for compiling speed.
