Latest news 2019-11-04: The giveaway of two signed copies of “Quack, quack, quack. Give my hat back!” has closed and the winning entrants have been selected. Thank you to everyone who took part.

6.2 Package Options

The graphicx package can have the following options passed to it:

draft
Don't actually display the images, just print the filename in a box of the correct size. This is useful if you want to print out a draft copy of a document to check the text rather than the images.

final
Opposite of draft (default).

hiderotate
Don't show rotated text.

hidescale
Don't show scaled text.

Remember that relevant options passed to the class file also affect packages.

Example (Draft Mode):

Draft mode helps to speed up compilation of a large document when you are editing the text. In the preamble:

\usepackage[draft]{graphicx}

or

\documentclass[draft]{scrbook}

\usepackage{graphicx}

Later in the document:

\includegraphics[width=1in,angle=45]{pictures/shapes}

Only bounding box and file name drawn

Exercise 15: Using the graphicx Package

Download the image file shapes.pdf (or create your own image), and include it into your document. (You can download or view an example solution.)

For more information on the graphicx package see The LaTeX Graphics Companion [5] or the graphicx documentation.
