I downloaded those and ran them, and they compiled fine.  Are you using the command "pdflatex myfile", or are you perhaps using the command "latex myfile"?

Subject: jpg/latex

I have a basic JPG/Latex question.   I cannot successfully run a very simple
latex program that is  to display an image.    (Normally I use eps files but
now I must use JPG images.)

I have attached the Latex file,  the image file  as well as a screenshot showing
the Latex complaint.

Any guidance would be appreciated.   Many thanks in advance.
