You don't have to (and here should not) use figure, use \includegraphics directly. – Corentin Dec 16 '13 at 6:30

The Solution

Simply use \includegraphics command from the graphicx package to include your image. This is nothing different from putting an image at any other location, including inside a figure environment.

You use the figure environment only when your image is a float (which is true is most of the cases, though). In a footnote, as desired by you, it is not.

There will be no harm even if you do not include an actual image inside figure. You may want to put some text as your figure and LaTeX will not complain.

MWE Code

Anyway, here is a minimal solution.


\usepackage{lipsum} % For dummy text only



\lipsum[1]\footnote{This footnote contains an image as well.



Further Tweaking

With a little tweaking, you can take care of vertical alignment of the image. See here should you need any help.
