    filename appearing above images

    I'm trying to have a few graphs in my paper and the last part of the filename appears above the graph in the PDF. How do I get rid of this?

    Here's the code I'm using:

    \usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx}

    ...

    \begin{figure}[h]
    \centering
    \includegraphics[width=0.60\textwidth]{C:/Documents and Settings/Owner/My Documents/Thesis/alpha.PNG}
    \caption{Mass distributions with varying values of alpha}
    \label{fig:2}
    \end{figure}


    I've heard switching to EPS format works, but can anyone send me to a free PNG to EPS convertor that doesn't leave a watermark?

    Ok I think I've figured out that my problem isn't with PNG/eps. If I make an eps it doesn't show up and just shows the filename, but if with PNG the filename and the picture are there.

    If you have OpenOffice, impress or draw will allow you to export as .eps

    (It will work even better is you can use a vector format rather than a bitmap)

    \usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx}

    ...

    The [pdftex] is not needed if the graphic is .eps, the driver is loaded automatically.

    I have some code on another machine that does this with .eps, and I will post it when I can get to that machine in about 7 hours.

    I solved the problem. Instead of

    \includegraphics[width=0.60\textwidth]{C:/Documents and Settings/Owner/My Documents/Thesis/alpha.PNG}

    I just needed

    \includegraphics[width=0.60\textwidth]{alpha.PNG}
