Thats generally better. The latex you create will be nice compared to what Lyx spits
out. You will be able to process it many years down the track.
Selecting the PDF Mode option generates pdf through (I think) pdftex,
but the system choked on jpeg files. Which led to the original question.
It does process the png files automatically, and they look better than
the jpeg files that were produced from Lyx.
It will be using pdflatex. You can try running "pdflatex myfile.tex" from the command
It should not chock on jpegs. Anyhow if png works well use it. They are small, open
standards format and readable by all. You can always change them later on to
