I am writing my thesis and using the amsart document class. On the first page I have used \maketitle, and have specified Title, Author and Abstract in the preamble, so these are produced. I would like to insert an image between the Author and the Abstract. At the moment I have added it after \maketitle, but this then follows the abstract, rather than preceding it. Is there a way to resolve this?

Edit to include code - I know there's a lot of packages there that probably aren't relevant, but decided to include everything I'm using just in case!


\usepackage[top=1in, bottom=1in, left=1.5in, right=1in]{geometry}
\DeclareGraphicsRule{.tif}{png}{.png}{`convert #1 `dirname #1`/`basename #1 .tif`.png}
Abstract text...

Welcome to TeX.SX! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – Henri Menke Aug 6 '13 at 12:58
Thanks, I've added it now – Jennifer Aug 6 '13 at 13:03

I redefined the internal \@maketitle to include the image. Use the newly defined \titleimage command to include your image in the standard way:


A complete example


  \let\@makefnmark\relax  \let\@thefnmark\relax
  \ifx\@empty\@date\else \@footnotetext{\@setdate}\fi
  \ifx\@empty\@subjclass\else \@footnotetext{\@setsubjclass}\fi
  \ifx\@empty\@keywords\else \@footnotetext{\@setkeywords}\fi
  \ifx\@empty\thankses\else \@footnotetext{%
  \global\topskip42\p@\relax % 5.5pc   "   "   "     "     "
  \ifx\@empty\authors \else \@setauthors \fi
    \dimen@34\p@ \advance\dimen@-\baselineskip
} % end \@maketitle


\title{The Title}
\author{The Author}
test abstract


Test text
