### Pictures in PlanetMath

I didn't mean to sit on PrimeFan's correction for a whole month, but these things came up in my life and I was always forgetting stuff for like the past month, etc. I imagine there is some document somewhere on this website that explains how to put in pictures. I just have no idea where it's at, and so I have no idea how to put pictures on PlanetMath either. I think the entry on Gauss has a bitmap picture of him, but for something like a diagram is there some kind of vector thingie I could use?

### Re: Pictures in PlanetMath

Maybe there's a better way, but I've always created a JPEG of the graphics and included it using \includegraphics{foo.jpg}. I've never done this in PlanetMath, only in my own documents, so I have no idea if it works here.

I did spend some time on the web investigating how to do this, and all other methods seem to be even more klunky or difficult.

### Re: Pictures in PlanetMath

For the type of picture you'd want for this article, I would recommend a program like Ipe. It's a GPLed vector drawing program available for several systems that plays nice with LaTeX. Consult http://ipe.compgeom.org for more details.

It is in the documentation section, alongside the
other site documents:

Oh thank you very much for that link! That's precisely what I need to read! Thank you!

### Re: Pictures in PlanetMath

I'll consider that after I read the PM guidelines rspuzio pointed out to me.
