Including PDF images in Plain TeX

Tech Computer Center logo

If you are using pdftex for direct translation of Plain TeX to PDF, follow these steps:

  1. Add these lines to the beginning of your file:
    \input miniltx   % `Mini-LaTeX'
    \def\Gin@driver{pdftex.def}
    \input graphicx.sty
    \resetatcatcode
  2. Create your graphic using either .jpg or .png format.
  3. At the point where you want to insert your graphic, use this TeX coding:
        \includegraphics{foo}
    where foo is the name of the file without its .jpg or .pngsuffix.
