Can´t add figures to the document

Postby gape01 » Fri Jun 09, 2017 2:11 am

Hi, I´m trying to add figures using the following code:

  1. \begin{figure*}
  2. \begin{center}
  3. \caption{this is a caption} \label{exemple_01}
  4. \includegraphics[scale=0.3]{exemple_01.png}
  5. \end{center}
  6. \end{figure*}

but it does not work. Can anyone help me?
The error message is:

  1. ! Undefined control sequence.
  2. l.325 \includegraphics
  3. [scale=0.3]{exemplo_01.png}

You have to load package graphicx.

Also avoid the center environment and use \centering instead.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Welcome to the forum!

To concretize what Johannes said, add \usepackage{graphicx} to the preamble of your document.

And regarding \centering, the correct way is

  1. \begin{figure*}
  2. \centering
  3. \caption{this is a caption} \label{exemple_01}
  4. \includegraphics[scale=0.3]{exemple_01.png}
  5. \end{figure*}

The effect of \centering is limited by the figure environment, so centering stops with \end{figure*}.
