# How to control the position of floating images? [duplicate]

Possible Duplicate:
Keeping tables/figures close to where they are mentioned

I want to make it like this:

text
image
text
image


But even if I put [h!] to the position the figures, the figure is moved to the next page because it is too large. The text which should be under the figure goes up over it!!!

How I can fix it?

You can use \FloatBarrier from the placeins package to prevent floats (figures) pass some point such as start of the text that follows. For example:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{placeins}
\begin{document}
Text
\begin{figure}[h!]
\includegraphics{pic1.jpg}
\end{figure}
\FloatBarrier
Text
\begin{figure}[h!]
\includegraphics{pic2.jpg}
\end{figure}
\FloatBarrier
Text
\end{document}

thanks a lot - that is what I was looking for :) –  user606521 Jun 3 '11 at 9:43
It will be more flexible if we omit the file extension. –  xport Jun 3 '11 at 9:47
