I want to an image at the bottom of a page in a two column document. Using figure* causes the image to jump to the bottom of the document. Is there a way to avoid this?

Here is an example:

\begin{figure*}[h]
\includegraphics[width=6 in]{image.png}
\caption{info}
\label{fig:1}
\end{figure*}

This results in all the images jumping to the bottom of the document. Using [b],[!b],[h], [!h],[ht] or [!ht] also results in the images jumping to the bottom of the document. Even if the figures are reduced in size, smaller than text width, I end up with several pages of text and then some pages of figures.

This is what I currently use.

\documentclass[twocolumn,pre,floats,aps,amsmath,amssymb]{revtex4}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{bm}
\begin{document}
\title{document title }
\author{name}
\affiliation {place }
\date{\today}
\maketitle
\section{Introduction}
\label{sec:intro}
\begin{figure*}[h]
\includegraphics[width=5 in]{1.png}
\caption{A sample schematic diagram for an experiment.}
\label{fig:1}
\end{figure*}
\section{Materials and Methods}
\label{sec:experiment}
\section{Results}

\begin{figure*}[h]
\includegraphics[width=6 in]{2.png}

\label{fig:2}
\end{figure*}.
\begin{figure*}[h]
\includegraphics[width=6 in]{3.png}
\caption{A sample schematic diagram for an experiment.}
\label{fig:3}
\end{figure*} 
\section{Conclusion}
\label{sec:conclusion}
\begin{figure*}[h]
\includegraphics[width=6 in]{4.png}

\label{fig:4}
\end{figure*}

This is just a shot in the dark, but you does putting \renewcommand{\bottomfraction}{0.99} in your preamble help at all? –  John Wickerson May 22 '13 at 12:49
