Using Graphics

There is a graphics package for LaTeX2e which I have not investigated yet, so I can't comment much on it. People who have used \epsf in their older documents should probably investigate the epsfig package, which is documented in the LaTeX Companion, and is very similar to the older package. I have used it in a number of documents with good results.

Recent investigations have revealed that epsfig is only intended as a backwards compatibility package, and any new documents should use the graphics package, and the \includegraphics command, as that is expected to be better supported in the long term. The best documentation for this package seems to be found in the LaTeX User's Guide.
