# [texhax] Importing images into TexShop doc

Hello,

I am trying to convert an old Textures LaTeX document to run in TexShop, and it has a lot of images. The old commands all have the general form

\begin{figure}
\vspace{2.5in} \hspace{1.4in}
\special{picture eulercircles.PICT scaled 600}
\end{figure}

What’s the easiest equivalent in TexShop, what packages do I need, where do I find them, and where do I install them? I tried a few approaches based on suggestions I found on the Web, including downloading the graphics package from CTAN, but could not even find a TeX Inputs folder to put it into, and simply replacing the old \special command by
\includegraphics[scale=1.0]{eulercircles.PICT}
got me nowhere.

Thanks,

Keith
