I would like to add camera symbol to headwords with photos (sometimes the photos are placed just bellow the headword, sometimes on the other page) so the user of dictionary can find certainly the photos. Is there a nice camera symbol, something like \Bicycle symbol etc. ? If no, what is the best way to do it?


The picture above illustrates using png picture, but the height of the line is enlarged.

there is some sort of camera symbol in the unicode: 0xF0 (UTF8 hex) – Rico Jun 13 '13 at 7:51
but you will need a font that supports this char like Symbolia – Rico Jun 13 '13 at 8:04
@Papiro I have looked at [question] (tex.stackexchange.com/questions/60780/…) and have read how to include svg pictures to LaTex. I will post an answer with result. Thank you. – chejnik Jun 13 '13 at 8:24

If you can work with XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX, fontawesome package provides \faCamera and \faCameraRetro icons.

enter image description here



\verb+fontawesome+ package includes (\verb+\faCamera+) \faCamera\ and (\verb+\faCameraRetro+) \faCameraRetro.
