[Tex/LaTex] Why aren’t the included graphics properly colored


When I include graphics in my document, the colors are always converted to grayscale, which is very unfortunate as I depend on the colors in the images.

I use LaTeX => PS => PDF for creating my document. Here is a MWE:



    \includegraphics[bb=0 0 966 503,scale=0.4]{images/highlight}
    \caption{Hervorgehobenes Bauteil}


The following image is the result.

Best Answer

I recommend using pdfLaTeX, which directly supports PNG image format. This means directly compiling to PDF, instead of using DVI and PS as intermediate format.

If you also need (E)PS images, you can use the epstopdf LaTeX package or the program with the same name and include them as PDF files.
