# \externalfigure

## Syntax

 \externalfigure[...][...,...=...,...] [...] file [...,...=...,...] see \useexternalfigure

## Description

Include an external figure. If it is a pdf file, by default \externalfigure will use the mediabox; you can tell it to use the artbox instead like so:

```% Unfortunately, cow.pdf is trimmed so that its mediabox coincides
% with its artbox, so it's not suitable for illustrating this key.
\externalfigure[cow][width=4cm,size=artbox]
```
