## I've uploaded figures but they don't appear in my document - what is wrong?

One thing to try first: after uploading the file, you have to make sure you've included it using the

\includegraphics

command (in the graphicx package), as in:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{document}
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{YOUR-FILE-NAME-HERE}
\end{document}


Another possible cause is if you've set the "draft" parameter in the documentclass declaration (e.g. if you're using the todonotes package):

\documentclass[11pt,A4paper,draft]{article}


This parameter applies to the whole document, and one effect is to turn figures off (for faster compilation). Check if you have the "draft" parameter set, and try removing it.
