# Math Help - why does this happen in Texshop on Mac

1. ## why does this happen in Texshop on Mac

I made a .tex file on windows xp. and generated a PDF.

But when i switched to Mac os and use Texshop to generate a PDF, it doesnt work!

it said this:

LaTeX Warning: File q1.jpg' not found on input line 70.

!pdfTeX error: /usr/texbin/pdflatex (file q1.jpg): cannot find image file
==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

Why does this happen?

Why does this happen?
did you copy the jpg over? are you using the same tool chain to generate the PDF?
