I'm trying to insert a picture of a graph I made for a project I'm working on and I would like to insert it into my final Latex file. Is there a way to do this on sagemath?

Thank you.

Assuming sagemath means Sagemath Cloud, you can. First you need to put \usepackage{graphicx} in your preamble (before \begin{document}). Then you insert the picture as nousfalasharaf indicates: \includegraphics{picturename.png}.

Depending on how your picture was made, you might find your picture is too big/small. The \includegraphics command comes with options to help with the size, rotation, etc. The LaTeX wiki is a great reference to answer many questions. The section on including graphics and the various options is here.

Note (in the link above) that if you aren't using Sagemath Cloud to compile your document and the engine used is LaTeX, rather than pdfLaTeX, then it won't compile. It needs images as eps files.

Thank you! I was using that command (which I should have mentioned), but I saved the image in the wrong place.
