Should there be a wiki question for inserting figures into LaTeX?

I am not really sure if this really is a good idea as I have expressed in chat, so I thought of asking here to know the opinion of the community.

This recent question Inserting Images in LaTeX which was closed as a duplicate, which is in turn a duplicate, might be considered a basic question--one in which an answer can be readily had and in more detail in freely-available manual like lshort. I did some searching and found out an old SO question posted some time ago about including .jpg files.

This might not be the first time that a question about inclusion of an external graphics will pop up so I am thinking that we can write a wiki question that summarizes basic inclusion of external graphics and close the other questions as duplicate of this wiki question. I am not sure though if this is the right approach.

So this post have two subquestions:

• Do we go with creating this wiki question?
• If we do, what should be included in the wiki question and answer? (Inserting .eps files and the use of graphicx package, etc.)

In my view, learning through illustration would be simple and attractive. Pasting some link with some example in writelatex may help – texenthusiast Feb 23 '13 at 18:12

Well, it should definitely be wiki since in many cases, even of the \includegraphics case, the new post will be a summary of the others. And so improving the questions and answers should be a "community" undertaking from the start. My fear is just that expressed T. Verron, that there is a danger our Q and A will parallel the manuals, which is not the purpose of this site. Although I have in mind the total newbies who are more used to searching answers through google than to going directly to manuals that they know nothing about yet in the first place. – hpesoj626 Feb 23 '13 at 2:59
