Images are empty

Another thought: perhaps also try reducing the minimal example further: remove natwidth and natheight options and the figure* environment and test again.

natwidth and natheight are not supposed to be used with pdflatex.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Thanks guys,

Natwidth and Natheight were the culprits, it works now.

I had those in there because I got boundingbox errors when I tried to compile using "LateX"
For some reason I always did Latex -> PDFLatex but clearly the first step is unnecessary.

Sorry to take your time and thankyou very much for helping :)

I've got the same problem and I am stuck!
I've got the message...
Package epstopdf Warning: No graphics package `graphic{s,x}' loaded.
... and after pdflatex compilation my pdf file shows empty squares where there
should be my figures.
Please, help! I've been using latex for over 20 years and I've never been like
