# [OS X TeX] Unusual bounding box problem

Mon Feb 21 23:43:01 EST 2011

Hi,

I have a very unusual problem. I produced an image on my system with the TISmartView software (see attached). I also converted it to pdf using the convert command of ImageMagick (see attached).

Now for my problem. This simple file compiles just fine.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{document}
\includegraphics[]{c2s1ex2a.png}
\end{document}

However, when I try to put the image in my book project with:

\includegraphics{graphics/c2s1ex2a.pdf}

I get the following error:

./section1.tex:56: LaTeX Error: Cannot determine size of graphic in graphics/c2
s1ex2a.pdf (no BoundingBox).

The structure of my project is:

1) I have a chapter2.tex in the folder chapter2 with has an \include{section1} command in it.
2) I have a file section1.tex in the folder chapter2. This is the file that has the command \includegraphics{graphics/c2s1ex2a.pdf}.
3) The image in in the folder chapter2/graphics

This is a very unusual situation for me. We are using the memoir package and we import a set of macros into the file chapter2.tex. I can send more information if this is not enough. This particular problem is holding me up from continuing work on our elementary algebra book for our students at College of the Redwoods.

David
