# [OS X TeX] Adding text, etc. to figures... why don't we just do it like this...

I used to be a big fan of psfrag before pdtex. pdftricks, etc., isn't
quite as convenient (I might have the names wrong). I had to get
something done quickly the other day and put $k_1$ on a figure, and
simply did the following.

\includegraphics[]{fig.jpg}\hspace*{-2.4in}\raisebox{1.2in}{$k_1$}

Am I missing something, or why are some of the other tools necessary?
Is this just not robust enough? Granted, it took a few compiles to get
the positioning right.

Joe
