If this is the case, you can always open the .jpg in Gimp and write it
to .png or maybe .pdf (I'm not that familiar with Gimp).

paper size and margins, you can even make a PDF with the same
dimensions as the .jpg.

If you want to change the size of the picture, on the \includegraphics
macro you can specify the width, like the following, which specifies
the width as 3em:
