### Question

I want to insert a .jpg image(that is in my current folder, where the .tex file is) after a paragraph. How can I do it in Latex? What should I include / what commands should I use?

You need to use a graphics library. Put this in your preamble:

\usepackage{graphicx}


You can then add images like this:

\begin{figure}[ht!]
\centering
\includegraphics[width=90mm]{fixed_dome1.jpg}
\caption{A simple caption \label{overflow}}
\end{figure}


This is the basic template I use in my documents. The position and size should be tweaked for your needs. Refer to the guide below for more information on what parameters to use in \figure and \includegraphics. You can then refer to the image in your text using the label you gave in the figure:

And here we see figure \ref{overflow}.

if you add a jpg,png,pdf picture, you should use pdflatex to compile it.
